HC Deb 21 July 1969 vol 787 c243W
62. Mr. Michael Foot

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what diplomatic changes about recognition and the acceptance of legations he proposes to make, in view of the fact that the Republican Government of the Yemen is now in full control of that country.

Mr. Foley

None, because the republican régime is not, in fact, in full control of Yemen, and does not meet our criteria for recognition for revolutionary régimes.
