Britain Says She is Not Interested in Having Member in U.N. Group

The British Government would not be interested in participating in the commission of experts being dispatched to the Middle East by the Conciliation Commission to investigate the Arab refugee situation, a government spokesman said today.

The British viewpoint, he declared, was that position would be different if it were a question of participation in a commission actually putting a resettlement program into effect. In view of Britain’s long experience in the Middle East, Britain might be prepared to join such a commission although “not enthusiastically,” it was stated.
