i think, it's one of the P.162 designs, made between 1952 and 1956, for
a long-range ASW/recce flying boat.
(drawning from "From Sea To Air", Tagg/Wheeler)

There are at least two other variants of the P.162 ! ;)
But this book really was a great find (thanks boxkite !)

Further to the picture posted by Hesahm from Flight, an earlier edition the same year showed this artists impression of the Saunders Roe MR design. https://www.flightglobal.com/pdfarchive/view/1954/1954%20-%200524.html?search=Saunders-Roe

The drawing shared by Jemiba looks very Beriev, especially in the nose!
