asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on the Government's policy with regard to the middle east.
We remain committed to the search for a peaceful settlement of he Arab-Israel dispute. We support King Hussein's efforts to arrive at a common Arab position, and Pesident Mubarak's further suggestions in that direction. We seek the restoration of the unity, stability and prosperity of Lebanon and a peaceful solution to the Gulf conflict. We are ready to support constructive moves by the parties directly involved.
