§ 70. Mr. Sproat
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what is his latest estimate of the loss of life among British nationals in South Vietnam, of damage to British property, and of disruption of British-aided relief work to refugees and orphans, as a result of the present invasion of South Vietnam by the regular forces of North Vietnam.
Mr. Anthony Boyle:
There have been no reports of loss of British lives or damage to British property in South Vietnam since the one incident which I reported to the House on 17th April. Our Embassy at Saigon reports that there has been no disruption so far of British relief or charitable work as a result of the present North Vietnamese offensive.—[Vol. 835, c. 16.]
