§ 52. Sir B. Janner
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what steps he now proposes to take at the United Nations, and in conjunction with other Governments, in respect of the hi-jacking of aircraft; and whether he will propose to the United Nations that any member Government which detains the victims of hi-jacking shall not be eligible for membership of the Security Council.
§ Mr. Foley
As to the first part of the question, I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply which I gave earlier today to the hon. Member for Wembley, South (Sir R. Russell). We do not consider that, given the accepted conventions relating to elections at the United Nations, the course proposed by my hon. Friend would seem appropriate.
