7. Mr. MALONE
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the British delegation on the Disarmament Commission at Geneva have received any instructions with reference to the Soviet proposals for general disarmament?
§ Sir A. CHAMBERLAIN
Yes, Sir. The British delegate on the Preparatory Committee for Disarmament has been instructed to co-operate with his colleagues in securing full examination of the Soviet proposals, and the House will note from this morning's papers that he has carried out his instructions with singular force and ability.
§ Colonel HOWARD-BURY
Can the right hon. Gentleman say whether the Russian Government is showing any desire by practical efforts to disarm, such as His Majesty's Government have already shown by reducing our cruiser programme?
§ Mr. RENNIE SMITH
Will the Foreign Secretary issue the Russian proposals in the form of a White Paper?
