HC Deb 02 March 1970 vol 797 cc7-8W
66. Sir Dingle Foot

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what reply Her Majesty's Govern- ment have made to the representations which they have received from the United Arab Republic regarding the recent attacks by Israeli aircraft on a civilian factory near Cairo and regarding the delivery by the United States of Phantom jets to Israel.

Mr. Luard

My right hon. Friends the Prime Minister and the Foreign and Commonwealth Secretary have told the United Arab Republic Ambassador that we deplore this and all acts of violence in the Middle East. They also reminded him that we are willing to work for a general agreement on the limitation of arms supplies to the area, even in advance of a political settlement.
