HC Deb 28 November 1979 vol 974 cc691-2W
36. Mr. David Watkins

asked the Lord Privy Seal what steps the Government are taking to commemorate the international day of solidarity with the Palestinian people announced for 29 November by the United Nations General Assembly.

Mr. Hurd

None. The Government are committed to support the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people, who should be able, within a comprehensive, durable and just settlement of the Arab-Israel conflict, to determine their own future in a land of their own. We do not however believe that the United Nations committee on the exercise of inalienable rights of the Palestinians or the special unit on Palestinian rights, under whose auspices the commemoration is organised, contribute to this end.
