Lords Hears Plea for Economic, Military Aid for Israel

A strong plea for economic and military aid for Israel was made in the House of Lords today by Lord Henderson, Labor Party expert on international affairs, when the House debated foreign affairs.

The Labor spokesman stressed that emphasis should be placed in the Middle East on constructive measures of development and a rising living standard. He also urged encouragement of concepts of political unity.

“So long as the prevailing conditions of insecurity prevail in this area,” Lord Henderson declared, Israel, which is the most stable democratic country, should be enabled to secure herself and she should not be denied the economic and military strength to deter aggression.”
