Orders of the Day — Queen's Speech: Debate on the Address ( 7 Nov 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: I think, on reflection, that I would rather not say anything about that this afternoon. One has to bear in mind whether what one says is helpful or otherwise, and I think that I would rather say nothing at the moment.

Orders of the Day — Queen's Speech: Debate on the Address ( 7 Nov 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: I answered, in another context, the very reasonable question which my hon. Friend put just now, and I think that I would rather hold to my answer. With regard to the first part of his question, I agree with him.

Orders of the Day — Queen's Speech: Debate on the Address ( 7 Nov 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: I do not think that I could possibly give an assurance like that.

Sessional Orders: Debate on the Address ( 6 Nov 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: I must, first, express my apologies to the House for not being able to be here earlier this evening and my gratitude for the way in which that has been received and the understanding that the House has shown in the matter. The reason why I asked for this indulgence, as I think the House will understand, was that a number of communications had been passing during the night and I was anxious to...

Sessional Orders: Debate on the Address ( 6 Nov 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: They wish to point out, however, that the clearing of the obstructions in the Suez Canal and its approaches, which is in no sense a military operation, is a matter of great urgency in the interests of world shipping and trade. The Franco-British force is equipped to tackle this task, and Her Majesty's Government therefore propose that technicians accompanying the Franco-British force shall...

Sessional Orders: Debate on the Address ( 6 Nov 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: —unless they are attacked. The French Government are in agreement with the terms of this reply. During the night I also received a personal message from Mr. Bulganin, which reached me several hours after it was made public. It has appeared in full in the Press. In the circumstances, I have thought it right to tell the House at once of my reply. This reply is now being delivered in Moscow....

Sessional Orders: Debate on the Address ( 6 Nov 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: I should like to make one or two comments on the general situation. There have been, and no doubt still are, bitter differences upon this matter across the House. I will lay down what I believe has been the result of the action we took, with all its admitted attendant risks, which I have never concealed. I believe that it has limited the area of conflict. If hon. Members think that that is...

Sessional Orders: Debate on the Address ( 6 Nov 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: After years of flickering war the stage can now be set—if the United Nations will put forward this force, adequate for the task—for negotiations and for a real settlement of the problems of the Middle East. As for the charge that we have broken friendships in the Commonwealth and elsewhere—I do not believe it. I believe that, as we emerge from this crisis and as the motives are more...

Sessional Orders: Debate on the Address ( 6 Nov 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: I am sure that the right hon. Gentleman and the House will understand that all day there have been international discussions about this situation, and that it would not be possible for me in detail to go beyond what I have said. I would point out to the right hon. Gentleman—I am sure he will understand this—that regarding the second part of my statement, referring to a cease-fire tonight,...

Sessional Orders: Debate on the Address ( 6 Nov 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: I think I must say, "no movement forward"—[HON. MEMBERS: "Oh."]—no movement southward; no movement southward means no movement forward. But I could not exclude whatever is necessary, for instance, in supplies and troops of that kind. It would not be reasonable, and I do not think that anyone would argue, that we should not bring in the necessary administrative mechanism to support our...

Middle East: Egypt and Israel (United Nations Resolutions) ( 5 Nov 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: I should like, if I may, to have an opportunity to examine the various matters raised on this issue and to consider a reply. [HON. MEMBERS : "When?"] Meanwhile, I think that the House would wish to know that I have had a flash signal from the Commander-in-Chief in the Eastern Mediterranean which affects even the discussion which is now taking place. That is why I intervened, as I know the...

Middle East: Egypt and Israel (United Nations Resolutions) ( 5 Nov 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: I read out the signal as I received it, because I thought that the House ought to have immediate information of the news at my disposal. Quite clearly, I cannot possibly know how wide or narrow—[HON. MEMBERS : "Why?"]; no, I cannot—is the area covered by the cease-fire ; but I should have thought every one of our fellow countrymen would have been delighted it has taken place.

Middle East: United Nations Resolution (United Kingdom Reply) ( 3 Nov 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: We move the Adjournment of the House in order that I may make the following statement in accordance with the undertaking that I gave yesterday to give the House as soon as I possibly could an indication of the reply we propose to send to the Resolution of the Assembly of the United Nations. I should first recall a statement which I made in the House in the course of my speech on 1st November...

Middle East: United Nations Resolution (United Kingdom Reply) ( 3 Nov 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: The Adjournment was moved at once, because I thought that that was the best way to proceed. Of course, I am entirely at the disposal of the House. There are one or two questions which the right hon. Gentleman put which I should like to answer now on points of fact, but I propose to give nothing but fact and not to reply on matters of controversy, and then my right hon. and learned Friend can...

Middle East: United Nations Resolution (United Kingdom Reply) ( 3 Nov 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: I have never made any objection to that procedure. The first of the two points on which I want to concentrate, because they are important, is our attitude to the General Assembly Resolution. I must say to the House that it is not true to say that countries are not allowed to make counter-proposals or other suggestions if the General Assembly has passed a Resolution. That has never been the...

Middle East: United Nations Resolution (United Kingdom Reply) ( 3 Nov 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: As regards the first of the right hon. Gentleman's questions. the answer is "Yes". In our conception the United Nations force would go in and do that work. and we should naturally not expect to be excluded from it. We should want to be a part of it.

Middle East: United Nations Resolution (United Kingdom Reply) ( 3 Nov 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: That is natural. I do not want to mislead the House. If there is to be a United Nations force, this country, with considerable interests in the matter, could be part of it. I should hope that the House would feel that I was not unreasonable—[An HON. MEMBER : "Burglars."] We are not burglars. The right hon. Gentleman the Leader of the Opposition has himself told us that we brought some...

Middle East: United Nations Resolution (United Kingdom Reply) ( 3 Nov 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: I really do not think that the nations of this world, when they ponder this matter and all the history that has gone before this last Israeli attack, are going to say that all the blame is on Israel and all the credit is for Nasser, or say that one was the householder and the other the burglar. As to the right hon. Gentleman's second question, I could not give that undertaking because, in...

Middle East: United Nations Resolution (United Kingdom Reply) ( 3 Nov 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: Certainly. The intention is that my right hon. Friend the Minister of Defence shall make a statement on this in the course of the discussion. I thought, however, that what the House wanted to deal with at once was this Resolution in respect of which I undertook to make a statement at 12 o'clock. I think I ought to say that we are sending it now to the Secretary-General of the United Nations...

Middle East: United Nations Resolution (United Kingdom Reply) ( 3 Nov 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: Certainly we do, and probably already, mechanically, have done so. I particularly mentioned Canada and the United States in this connection because of Mr. Pearson's observations in connection with the contribution of an armed United Nations force when he spoke at the Assembly. Therefore, I immediately communicated in particular with him, but I trust, indeed I am sure, that by now...
