HC Deb 18 November 1968 vol 773 cc186-7W
45. Mr. Longden

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what instructions he gave to the permanent representative at the United Nations to follow up the proposals made by the Secretary-General in his annual report for the year 1966–67 regarding the membership of micro-States and the question of observer status.

Mr. Goronwy Roberts

We were willing to participate in discussion of the Secretary-General's suggestions by the Security Council Admissions Committee this year, but no meeting has been held. We have also supported the current study of the whole question by the United Nations Institute for Training and Research.
