Oral Answers to Questions — Hydrogen Bomb Tests (20 Dec 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: I am not aware of any decision by President Eisenhower to suspend the United States hydrogen bomb tests, nor have I received any proposals from the President on the subject. Certain exchanges have, however, been taking place between our two countries and are continuing on disarmament in general, including all aspects of nuclear disarmament. The point regarding the cancellation of the British...

Oral Answers to Questions — Hydrogen Bomb Tests (20 Dec 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: I think that is right. I should like to check it up. We said, so far as limitation is concerned, that we were prepared for a separate arrangement. As to suspension, I think that the right hon. and learned Gentleman is right.

Oral Answers to Questions — Hydrogen Bomb Tests (20 Dec 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: I do not think that that arises at all now. We are having certain exchanges between the two Governments about the general disarmament position, including the whole nuclear field of disarmament. I am afraid that I cannot say more than that at the present time because they are conversations between two Governments.

Oral Answers to Questions — Hydrogen Bomb Tests (20 Dec 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: The right hon. Gentleman is perfectly correct. We have been at work on drafting these proposals, and it is my hope that within a very few weeks we shall have our proposals ready in that respect. The right hon. Gentleman knows that these are highly technical and not simple matters, but I have not forgotten what we said, and our purpose remains exactly the same.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury Ministers (20 Dec 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: No, Sir. My right hon. Friend already has the able assistance of the Financial Secretary and the Economic Secretary; and he can, and he does whenever appropriate, depute one of them to represent him at conferences overseas.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury Ministers (20 Dec 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: I should like to say that when I was an Under-Secretary I was not unduly bothered about that, and I do not think that the right hon. Gentleman opposite was either.

Oral Answers to Questions — Israel and Egypt (Anglo-French Ultimatum) (20 Dec 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: I was dealing with the actual Question on the Order Paper, and in that regard there are two points as to consultation and as to American policy. The United States Government have made it quite plain recently that their criticism is not in respect of consultation but in respect of policy. But I am perfectly ready, if the House will bear with me, to make some observations on the general, wider...

Oral Answers to Questions — Israel and Egypt (Anglo-French Ultimatum) (20 Dec 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: I am much obliged to the right hon. Gentleman. The position is exactly as I have stated it to the House now. It is perfectly true that there were a number of discussions on every kind of hypothetical event in the Middle East—[Interruption.]—hypothetical attack. If anybody is surprised at that, I will merely mention—I forget the exact figure—that there were over 100 people killed on...

Oral Answers to Questions — Israel and Egypt (Anglo-French Ultimatum) (20 Dec 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: I am responsible for what I say to the House and not for what Ministers in other countries say in other Houses. I must have an opportunity to examine the words used by other Foreign Ministers. I know myself what the position of our own Government was quite clearly. That is that the decisions were taken on the date I gave, and that, though we did discuss every other hypothesis—and far more ...

Oral Answers to Questions — Israel and Egypt (Anglo-French Ultimatum) (20 Dec 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: What we did, not only privately but publicly also, if the hon. and learned Gentleman would look at the record, was to issue repeated warnings that if there were an attack by Israel on Jordan we should act in accordance with our Treaty obligations. That is quite true, and we so informed our allies, including France. I see nothing whatever wrong in that. Indeed, I can imagine nothing which...

Oral Answers to Questions — Israel and Egypt (Anglo-French Ultimatum) (20 Dec 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: I have made a very full statement. I would add only this, that—[An HON. MEMBER: "What about Egypt?"] I am willing to answer about Egypt; I have no objection, if hon. Members will be patient. As regards a fuller statement, I have explained that we did examine—and I am not in the least ashamed of it—every conceivable hypothesis which might arise in a very dangerous Middle-Eastern...

Adjournment (Christmas) (20 Dec 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: I should like to speak at once on this matter. First of all, regarding the last observation of the right hon. Gentleman about whether I agreed with what M. Mollet has said about the United States, naturally, I suppose, the House has not entirely in its mind what I myself said at the beginning of the whole of this business, on this very subject, on 31st October. I am sorry to have to quote...

Adjournment (Christmas) (20 Dec 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: I cannot give way. I am trying not to trespass upon the time of the House. I think that I am entitled to put this view. Looking at the matter from a military point of view, it seemed possible, to put it no higher—I would put it higher than that, and say probable—that, feeling the noose tightening—

Adjournment (Christmas) (20 Dec 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: If anybody had been in Tel Aviv at that time, and if they were concerned with what had happened, they would have known that Israel would strike out before she was strangled. Jordan was a possibility upon the list, and a possibility in a different category from Egypt, from our point of view, because we had a Treaty with Jordan. Not only had we a treaty with her, but nobody else had. If there...

Adjournment (Christmas) (20 Dec 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: May I say a word? I do not want to argue about the actual order of the debate, but I would be sorry if I could not answer some of the questions that have been put to me. I will be as brief and as categorical as I can.

Adjournment (Christmas) (20 Dec 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: rose—

Adjournment (Christmas) (20 Dec 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: I should like first to deal with the questions asked by the hon. Member for Orkney and Shetland (Mr. Grimond) about dates and knowledge in respect of Tel Aviv. In a sense, that will meet also the point raised by the hon. Member for Dudley (Mr. Wigg). Whatever may or may not have been said in supplementaries in sharp quick answers, the facts are these. They have been said, and I want to make...

Adjournment (Christmas) (20 Dec 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: I am answering the hon. Gentleman behind the hon. Member, who put some specific questions to me. I have looked out these dates very carefully to make sure that I am getting the matter right. The hon. Member was not even in the House when this was going on.

Adjournment (Christmas) (20 Dec 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: I beg the hon. Member's pardon. That representation was quite apart from the risk of a general war which could have resulted from any such attack. On 29th October, our Minister in Tel Aviv saw the Israeli Minister for Foreign Affairs and she assured him that no further hostile move was intended against Jordan—[Interruption.]—that was in the morning. She also said that Israel was not...
