HC Deb 10 November 1969 vol 791 cc9-10W
Mr. S. C. Silkin

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what action he proposes to take on the resolution of the North Atlantic Assembly, a copy of which is in his possession, urging the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation Governments to concert their actions towards bringing about a prompt return to democracy in Greece.

Mr. Luard

Her Majesty's Government have noted the terms of this resolution and are in full agreement with its objective of promoting an early return to democratic rule in Greece.

This has been our continuing aim and we have naturally discussed it with other interested Governments. But in considering how it should be implemented we must also determine which is the most appropriate forum for pursuing such objectives.
