asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what representations have been made by the Government of the U.S. to the British Government regarding the operations now in progress in Indonesia.

Apart from a request to remove all United States markings from vehicles and other Lend-Lease equipment used by British forces in the Netherlands Indies, no other representations have been received.

Would the right hon. Gentleman now take the opportunity to answer the supplementary question which I put to him earlier, and to which he replied that he would answer a question on the subject later; namely, whether he can make a statement concerning the alleged treacherous shooting of a British brigadier in that country?

I have the answer here, but unfortunately the Question has not been called.

In view of the critical situation in Indonesia, would my right hon. Friend consider making a statement at the end of Questions, in reply to these Questions which have not been put orally?
