Chapter Summary

This chapter analyzes the complex responses of Whitehall to the Bandung Conference and its political ramifications especially in relation to the issue of decolonization in Africa. It also concerns itself with the British assessment of the conference, including its potential consequences on the UK's economic interests in Asia and Africa, which attracts extensive commentary. The British Government was concerned about the possible implications of a PRC attack on Taiwan for the Anglo-American alliance. The chapter examines the British assessment of the conference and its outcomes, first by briefly touching on their views on the implications of the conference for the UN and how this might affect their interests. It also examines British concerns about the potential effects of the conference on British economic interests. R.W.Parkes's long report cast a positive light on the outcome of the conference.

Keywords: Africa; Anglo-American alliance; Bandung conference; Britain; PRC attack; R.W.Parkes; Whitehall's Prognosis
