§ Mr. Ridley
Some 90 States were represented at the first session of the conference, which ended on 17 July with the adoption by concensus of a declaration and a resolution designed to promote a comprehensive political settlement of the Cambodian problem. Copies of these texts have been placed in the Library of the House.
We believe that the conference will prove to have made useful progress towards the objectives of an independent and neutral Cambodia, set out in the speech that my right hon. and noble Friend made to the conference on 15 July on behalf of the Ten member Governments of the European Community. This has also been placed in the Library.
