HC Deb 02 February 1970 vol 795 cc7-8W
40. Mr. Brooks

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether he is yet in a position to announce the results of the work of the joint commission set up at Geneva in February, 1966, to investigate the border dispute between Venezuela and the then State of British Guiana; and whether he now proposes to have discussions with the Governments of Venezuela and Guyana to consider further steps towards a peaceful outcome of the dispute.

Mr. M. Foley

No, the Mixed Commission has not yet made its final report. Discussions on all aspects of the border dispute are a part of our day-to-day diplomatic contacts with the Governments of Guyana and Venezuela.
