HC Deb 06 May 1968 vol 764 c33W
Mr. Dean

asked the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Affairs what action Her Majesty's Government is taking to help bring about a settlement in Nigeria; and, following his discussions with the Minister representing the Nigerian Government, what is now Her Majesty's Government's policy regarding the continuing supply of arms.

Mr. George Thomson

As has been stated on a number of occasions, Her Majesty's Government are fully supporting the peace moves being made by Mr. Arnold Smith, the Commonwealth Secretary-General and others. We have frequently declared our willingness to help in any way which both sides might desire in order to get peace talks going. I have nothing to add to my previous statements on the supply of arms.
