Britain to Refrain from Discussing Resettlement of Arab Refugees

Foreign Secretary Selwyn Lloyd had informed the House of Commons today that the British Government will not initiate discussions within the Bagdad Pact with a view to resettlement of Palestine Arab refugees in the undeveloped areas of member countries in the Middle East.

“I think a solution of the problem of Arab refugees must rest with a wider body than the Bagdad Pact,” Mr. Lloyd said in a written reply to questions.
