asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether, in view of the intention of the United States Government to support the Spanish application for membership of the United Nations organisation, he will give an assurance that his policy towards Spain remains the same as declared on previous occasions.

I am not aware that Spain has made application for membership of the United Nations. The policy of His Majesty's Government remains unchanged in this matter.

Am I to understand that the policy of His Majesty's Government remains exactly what it was at the time their representatives supported the United Nation's resolution on this matter in 1946?

A full statement on policy was made in an adjournment Debate a few weeks ago, and I have nothing to add to that.
