HC Deb 23 February 1967 vol 741 c328W
41. Mr. Philip Noel-Baker

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will bring before the Security Council, as a threat to world peace, the plan of Mr. Tshombe to conquer the province of Katanga with the help of foreign mercenaries, and to detach it from the Congo Republic.

Mr. George Thomson

No. As my right hon. Friend will be aware, the Congolese Government themselves raised in the Security Council last September the question of a threat to the peace arising from the alleged presence of mercenaries in Angola.
