– in the House of Commons at 12:00 am on 14th December 1955.
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what reports he has received about the state of public security in the Aden Protectorate at the present time.
I am glad to say the reports I have received from the Governor show that, although there have been a certain number of incidents, the security position in those parts of the Western Aden Protectorate which have been troubled by dissidents has of late considerably improved. In the remainder of the Western and all the Eastern Protectorate the position remains satisfactory.
While thanking my' right hon. Friend for that satisfactory reply, may I ask whether he can say that the Yemen is now playing the part of a good neighbour?
