HC Deb 15 November 1965 vol 720 c19W
44. Mr. Warbey

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, what representations he has made to the United States Government about their military activities in South Vietnam, including the bombing of villages and the use of irritant and asphyxiating gases.

Mr. George Thomson

Her Majesty's Government's representations to other Governments have concentrated on persuading both sides in the Vietnam war to leave the battlefield for the conference table, on the grounds that the only way to end the horrors inherent in modern war is to end the war itself. As the House knows, the United States have said they are ready for unconditional discussions. There has been no official change in the negative response from the other side.
