§ 24. Mr. John Lee
asked the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Affairs if he will take steps to convene a Commonwealth peace mission to mediate in the dispute between the Federation of Nigeria and Biafra.
§ Mr. George Thomson
I do not think that we should advance the prospects of peace by taking this particular initiative at present. Although Her Majesty's Government have carefully considered this and other ideas, neither they nor any other Government can intervene unasked.
