§ Q13. Mr. Rankin
asked the Prime Minister if, in view of Her Majesty's Government's peace initiative in Vietnam, he will consult President Johnson in order to secure a suspension of United States bombing operations in Vietnam during the period of his visit to Russia.
§ The Prime Minister
I would refer my hon. Friend to the statements I have made referring to the failure of the North Vietnamese to respond to the peace initiatives of Her Majesty's Government and the United States Government during the recent prolonged bombing pause.
