HC Deb 20 November 1967 vol 754 c230W
60. Mr. G. Campbell

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the United Kingdom is supplying arms to any of the countries which were involved in the Middle East war last June.

Mr. Goronwy Roberts

Some arms are being supplied but, as my right hon. Friend told the United Nations General Assembly in June, all the supplying powers have a responsibility to reach agreement on arms limitation as soon as possible.

67. Mr. Bob Brown

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will propose at the United Nations a settlement of the Middle East in which withdrawal of Israeli forces would take place upon de jure recognition of Israel by all member states, and the guarantee to all member states of full navigational rights through the Suez Canal and the Straits of Tiran, and the signature of a peace treaty guaranteed by all member states to cover the whole area.

Mr. George Brown

I set out the broad outline of Her Majesty's Government's policy in the Foreign Affairs debate on 2nd November. The crucial question remains, not whether Her Majesty's Government or any other Government should propose at the United Nations a particular solution, or even simply the passing of a resolution in New York, but the achievement of results on the ground in the Middle East. The resolution which Her Majesty's Government has tabled in the Security Council is addressed to this need.—[Vol. 753, c. 342–5.]
