48. Mr. Ron Brown
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on Britain's relations with Libya.
§ Mr. Luce
British and Libyan officials met in Rome on 5 March at Libyan request and through the good offices of the Italian protecting power. This was a useful opportunity to exchange information, reduce possible misunderstandings, and discuss administrative and other practical problems. The British side sought clarification of some recent statements by Colonel Gaddafi.
