Mr Kenneth Younger: asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what contribution Her Majesty's Government will make to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees for the year ending 31st March, 1960; and whether this is more or less than was paid in 1958–59.

Oral Answers to Questions — Refugees (11 May 1959)

Mr Kenneth Younger: Is it also the same sum as that promised on the last occasion? Is it not the case that the figure promised last year was larger than the figure in the current Estimates by about £70,000? If that is the case, can the Minister explain why the amount mentioned in the previous year was not in fact paid? Secondly, does he not think it rather ironical that apparently the Government are reducing...

Oral Answers to Questions — Colonial Territories (11 May 1959)

Mr Kenneth Younger: Are we to understand from that reply that there are no continuing discussions with France, in particular, about this large network of territories, the majority of which are still not independent and are under French or British rule? Is the Minister aware that there is a great deal of disquiet among many people interested in West Africa at the lack of co-operation there appears to be between...

Oral Answers to Questions — Icelandic Fisheries Dispute (11 May 1959)

Mr Kenneth Younger: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that a great many people will think that the interim offer of Her Majesty's Government is, in fact, a very reasonable one? Can he tell me whether any steps have been taken, either through N.A.T.O. or O.E.E.C., both of which bodies have at various times attempted to mediate in this dispute? Is there anything going on about this at the present time in either forum?

Oral Answers to Questions — United Nations: Algerian Refugees (15 Apr 1959)

Mr Kenneth Younger: Is it not a fact that the United States Government have made some contribution to this appeal and can the Minister assure us that Her Majesty's Government will make a contribution fairly soon?

Oral Answers to Questions — Tibet (15 Apr 1959)

Mr Kenneth Younger: asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is now in a position to make a statement about refugees attempting to leave Tibet, in the light of official information available to him from first-hand witnesses.

Oral Answers to Questions — Tibet (15 Apr 1959)

Mr Kenneth Younger: While I appreciate the great difficulty of getting exact information, may I ask the right hon. and learned Gentleman whether he would agree that it is almost certain that there will be some refugees, possibly not large numbers? Is he contemplating any discussions to ensure that these refugees will be received and that possibly, and if necessary, they will become an international responsibility?

Oral Answers to Questions — MR. Guy Burgess (9 Mar 1959)

Mr Kenneth Younger: May I ask the Minister a question on his final phrase about travel facilities? Does it imply that, irrespective of whether a criminal charge might lie against Mr. Burgess, about which I know nothing, the Government have already taken the decision that no passport would be issued to him? Would not that be rather exceptional procedure? Is it not the case that in peacetime travel passports are...

Northern Iraq (Situation) (9 Mar 1959)

Mr Kenneth Younger: (by Private Notice) asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, in view of the reports of a military revolt in Northern Iraq, what information he has about the security of British families living there.

Northern Iraq (Situation) (9 Mar 1959)

Mr Kenneth Younger: While thanking the Minister for his assurance about the steps being taken on behalf of British nationals, may I ask him whether we can take it from his Answer that this revolt is regarded as being purely an internal matter to be dealt with by Iraq and not calling on this occasion for intervention by Her Majesty's Government?

Oral Answers to Questions — Hospitals: Iraq (Supply of Arms) (2 Mar 1959)

Mr Kenneth Younger: In view of the fact that, it is only a day or two since the House was told by one of the Ministers of the Foreign Office—I cannot remember who—that the Tripartite Declaration, in the view of the Government, was in force in this matter, can we be told whether that is the policy which governs the giving of arms, or the Bagdad Pact, or what?

Oral Answers to Questions — Germany: Berlin (2 Mar 1959)

Mr Kenneth Younger: Have the Government noted that in one of the official notes of the Soviet Union two or three weeks ago reference was made to the possibility of the United Nations having a rôle to play in the settlement of Berlin? Is not this something which one would previously have expected the Soviet Government to exclude? Should we not regard it as an encouraging sign? May we take it that, despite the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Germany: Anglo-Danish Agreement (Faroese Fishing Limits) (2 Mar 1959)

Mr Kenneth Younger: Will the Government consider approaching Iceland once again now that it has been shown that by reasonable negotiation some agreement may be reached?

Oral Answers to Questions — Suez Operations (18 Dec 1958)

Mr Kenneth Younger: Is the Prime Minister aware that what has been said in debate have been simply ex parte statements by Ministers who were themselves concerned, and that what we want is evidence? Is he aware that nobody will ever be convinced by statements from that bench opposite unsupported by the evidence, and that that is why we want a White Paper?

Questions to Ministers (18 Dec 1958)

Mr Kenneth Younger: Is it not the fact that many Questions are put to the Foreign Secretary, and are accepted by the Table, on the lines of asking him to make representations to a foreign Government about something which is within the responsibility of that foreign Government? That is the whole purpose of diplomacy. Surely, if the Foreign Secretary is asked to consult his allies on any policy matter regarding...

Questions to Ministers (18 Dec 1958)

Mr Kenneth Younger: That may be so as a matter of policy, but surely, as a matter of order, the Foreign Secretary could make such representations. Is this not a matter of policy on which the Foreign Secretary should be asked to give an answer?

Orders of the Day — Obscene Publications (16 Dec 1958)

Mr Kenneth Younger: I wonder whether it would be too inconvenient to ask the right hon. Gentleman to repeat the definition he proposed earlier in his speech. He gave it in advance and I cannot say that I grasped it. Would he read it again?

Orders of the Day — Obscene Publications (16 Dec 1958)

Mr Kenneth Younger: After the near unanimous speeches that we have had in this debate, there is nothing I would wish to do except to reinforce the plea, which has already been made by several right hon. and hon. Members, that we should pass now from the stage of near unanimity to action. It may be that the Home Secretary was a little vague when he told us in his opening statement about his intentions for the...

Orders of the Day — Obscene Publications (16 Dec 1958)

Mr Kenneth Younger: I do not know whether the hon. Member expects me to approve of that. I do not think that we can take that as an argument one way or the other in connection with what I am saying. I am saying that it is different when there is no doubt about the artistic merit of a work because for centuries it has been recognised. Contemporary works are more difficult and there is the question whether...
