asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he has considered the resolution from the Council of Manchester and Salford Jews, relating to the recognition of the State of Israel, sent to him by the hon. Member for North Salford; and if he will make a statement.

The resolution was carefully considered; but I have nothing to add to my statement in the Debate on the Adjournment on 10th June.

What will be the attitude of the Government if in the present negotiations the United Nations decide to recognise the State of Israel?

Will the Under-Secretary tell us whether the Government are determined to be the last sovereign State to recognise the State of Israel?

As I have explained, we are with the great numerical majority of mankind in that we have not recognised Israel.
