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

Mr Anthony Eden: My right hon. Friends tells me that messages have already gone to them. I told the House actually before, I think, the messages had gone to anyone in detail because I wanted to give it to the House. I repeat again that I sent the statement to Canada because of the speech of Mr. Pearson and because I thought the House would think it right to tell him at once.

Middle East: Egypt (Military Situation) ( 3 Nov 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: Some days ago I think I told the House of the action that it was in the Government's mind to take. That action we have carried through and are carrying through. I can only add that, so far as the action against Egyptian airfields is concerned, I do not believe it would have been possible to take more precautions in respect of the actual targets than were taken by the Royal Air Force. That has...

Middle East: Egypt (Military Situation) ( 3 Nov 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: I made plain in the debate, when we were supported by the House after a Motion of censure had been moved by the Opposition, the reasons why we were taking the action that we had to take. The Government remain absolutely convinced that to proceed with this action is the best way of limiting hostilities and of getting an early separation of the forces on both sides. Therefore, we consider it...

Middle East: United Nations Resolution ( 2 Nov 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: The information on the debate is only just reaching me. I notice that Australia and New Zealand voted against the resolution, and that there were several abstentions, including Canada and South Africa. [HON. MEMBERS : "Sixty-four voted for".] In the circumstances, I must be given an opportunity to study the resolution and the speeches before I make any statement to the House.

Middle East: United Nations Resolution ( 2 Nov 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: As the right hon. and learned Gentleman knows, this is a recommendation. I desire to study both the terms of the recommendation and the speeches which were made in the debate before I add any other word to the statement I have made.

Middle East: United Nations Resolution ( 2 Nov 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: No, Sir ; I can give no such undertaking.

Middle East: United Nations Resolution ( 2 Nov 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: I have considered that, but I cannot give that undertaking.

Middle East: United Nations Resolution ( 2 Nov 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: I really do not think so. I do not think it will be considered so if I ask for an opportunity to study a number of very grave—

Middle East: United Nations Resolution ( 2 Nov 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: —a number of very important speeches, the texts of which have not even yet reached me.

Middle East: United Nations Resolution ( 2 Nov 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: I regret the circumstance that we should now be towards the end of the week, but I do not think that anybody could consider it unreasonable, in a matter of this importance, that I should be given an opportunity even to study all the speeches made, not only by members of the Commonwealth but by those who do not agree with us.

Middle East: United Nations Resolution ( 2 Nov 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: The difficulty and the objection is that I cannot be certain that by then I shall have even the text, let alone the opportunity to examine what was said in the course of this debate ; and that I must have before I can make any statement to the House.

Middle East: United Nations Resolution ( 2 Nov 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: The right hon. Gentleman has put his question perfectly courteously. At the same time, I do not want to mislead the House. I cannot give any undertaking, because I am not yet in possession even of the report of our own representative at the United Nations. These are matters upon which one must be allowed the ordinary opportunities for study. I am not prepared, and no Prime Minister would be...

Middle East: United Nations Resolution ( 2 Nov 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: If I might answer that charge, if the hon. Member will look at HANSARD he will see it quite clearly stated from the beginning that I declared that we had taken action—the French Government and ourselves—on our own responsibility.

Egypt (Military Situation) ( 1 Nov 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: The right hon. Gentleman and his colleagues have put down a Motion of censure—

Egypt (Military Situation) ( 1 Nov 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: —which they are perfectly entitled to do, and the Government speakers will deal with all aspects of the situation in reply to what they say.

Egypt (Military Situation) ( 1 Nov 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: The action which has been taken has been, as I explained yesterday, in accordance with the statement we made. [Interruption.] No further declaration has been made going beyond that.

Egypt (Military Situation) ( 1 Nov 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: I hope it is not unreasonable if I say that these questions do involve certain definitions. I am quite confident that I can give a satisfactory and reassuring answer to the House, but I would much rather do it—if the House will allow me—in the speech which I am shortly to make—[HON. MEMBERS: "No."]—because I can assure the right hon. Gentleman that there are legal matters involved in...

Egypt (Military Situation) ( 1 Nov 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: So far as supplementary questions go, I think that the right hon. Gentleman will agree that in a matter of this complexity and gravity it is not unreasonable that I should be allowed to make a statement in the course of the speech I shall be making in, I suppose, half-an-hour's time or a little more. I am absolutely convinced that I shall persuade the House that the position is a satisfactory...

Egypt (Military Situation) ( 1 Nov 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: I think that the right hon. Gentleman knows my general attitude to giving way. Of course I would give way to the Leader of the Opposition, or anybody else who wishes to ask a question on these matters. I hope that I shall also have an opportunity to develop the rest of my speech.
