§ Mr. Evelyn King
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he proposes to offer an apology to France in respect of the British frigate which fired across the bows of an unarmed French tanker off Beira.
§ Mr. William Rodgers:
No. As my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Defence stated yesterday, the commanding officer of the British frigate acted throughout the incident in pursuance of the Security Council Resolution of 9th April, 1966.
