§ 75. Mr. Beswick
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he will discuss with other Powers concerned proposals for the co-ordinated economic development of the Middle East, including a co-operative scheme for the extraction 104W and distribution of oil along the lines of the plan put before the United Nations by the International Co-operative Alliance.
§ Mr. Selwyn Lloyd
We are in close touch with the member countries of the Bagdad Pact as well as with the United States and our other Allies and friends on matters concerning the economic development of the Middle East.
No plan has been put before the United Nations by the International Cooperative Alliance for some years.
