asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he has considered a resolution passed by the Hurl-ford branch of the N.U.R., and sent to him by the hon. Member for West Fife, objecting to the use of British troops in Indo-China and Indonesia; and what reply has he made.

I have been asked to answer this Question as the Resolution has been passed to the Foreign Office. It is one of many similar Resolutions which have reached the Foreign Office. Its receipt has been acknowledged. The Government policy regarding the use of British troops in Indonesia and Indo-China has been declared in two statements in Parliament, one by the Prime Minister on 17th October in reply to Questions by the hon. Member for Cardiff, South (Mr. Callaghan) and the other by myself in reply to the hon. and gallant Member for the Waterloo division of Lancaster (Captain Bullock) on 24th October.
