HC Deb 09 November 1976 vol 919 c113W
Mr. Hooley

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will raise in the United Nations Security Council the question of Israeli piracy against civil shipping in the Eastern Mediterranean.

Dr. Owen

No. As I said in reply to a similar question put by my hon. Friend the Member for Greenwich, Woolwich East on 28th October, such a move would be unlikely to assist in resolving the conflict in Lebanon. But we certainly do not condone illegal activities by any party in the area.
