Egypt and Israel (30 Oct 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: As regards the question about the debate, of course I gladly conform to what the right hon. Gentleman has suggested. As regards what I said about the time, I have asked for an answer to these communications within twelve hours and it would not therefore be possible for me to give the undertaking about action for which the right hon. Gentleman has asked. The communications were conveyed to the...

Egypt and Israel (30 Oct 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: I am sorry, I cannot give that undertaking, and I must explain why to the House. The fighting is going on at this moment.

That is why we and the French Government thought...

Egypt and Israel (30 Oct 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: I should like to answer the hon. Member's appeal. I think I must explain to the House the difficulties of this position. They are not all easily explicable. It is not only the position of shipping which is involved ; there is also the question of stopping this fighting before it spreads more widely, and that affects both sides. I do not want to exaggerate too much, but I want to keep the...

Egypt and Israel (30 Oct 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: I am perfectly prepared to answer. I have explained to the House the circumstances in which this situation arose last night, and the House knows the action we have taken. We have been in close communication not only with the United States Government, but also with the Security Council to whom we have sent these proposals. We have also kept in close consultation with the Commonwealth...

Egypt and Israel (30 Oct 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: Sir, as we undertook earlier, we now resume this important and grave discussion.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministerial Broadcasts (25 Oct 1956)

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministerial Broadcasts (25 Oct 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: I hardly think so. The answer to the hon. Gentleman has enabled him to elicit how few broadcasts there have been. Of course, there are opportunities—and rightly so—for hon. Members opposite also to indulge in these practices if they feel that they have to. As to who originates the suggestion, it is sometimes from one quarter and sometimes from another. I can only assure the hon. Gentleman...
