§ Lord Brockway
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether they will support the committee under 386WA the chairmanship of Sir George Middleton, former ambassador to Lebanon, to establish a zone of peace around Tyre to save its archaeological sites.
§ Lord Carrington
Her Majesty's Government share the Committee's concern about the situation in South Lebanon and the need to safeguard the archaeological sites of Tyre. However, I have no information about what precisely is meant by declaring Tyre "a zone of peace" and I cannot comment on this proposal.
