Oral Answers to Questions — Indonesia (23 Mar 1964)

Mr R.A.

Mr R.A. Butler: First, we must await the actual establishment of the force which, we hope, will take place later this week.

Thirdly, if there is an opportunity when the others have joined us in the United Nations force to relieve some of our troops, I am sure that my right hon. Friend the...

In regard to the terms of reference, we are in contact with the Secretary-General. He...

Oral Answers to Questions — China (Cultural Relations) (23 Mar 1964)

Mr R.A. Butler: Her Majesty's Government made several approaches to the Chinese Government in 1962 with a view to developing cultural exchanges between the two countries.
