HL Deb 17 April 1975 vol 359 c592WA

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they view with alarm the recent advances of Communist forces in South-East Asia; how such advances accord with the terms of the negotiated ceasefire; and what action, if any, the Government propose to take, particularly in the field of rescue and relief work in Vietnam.


Her Majesty's Government are deeply concerned about the situation in Indo-China. We deplore the continued fighting in Vietnam in violation of the Paris Agreement of 1973, and have called on the Vietnamese parties to seek a political solution through a resumption of talks in accordance with that Agreement. The Government have set aside £1 million for relief work in Indo-China to help alleviate human suffering there.

House adjourned at twenty-one minutes before eight o'clock.
