May I assure Government supporters that my right hon. Friends and myself who were in the Labour Government in 1951 and in the previous Labour Government would have no objection to the publication of those documents, provided that all the relevant documents are published? May I ask the right hon. Gentleman whether he and his colleagues in Her Majesty's Government would also be prepared to lay on the Table documents relating to the handling of Cyprus by Her Majesty's present Government and the previous Conservative Administration, and in particular the documents relating to all the considerations, including party considerations, which led to the timing of the Hopkinson statement which precipitated the present Cyprus crisis?
