§ 19. Mr. Ronald Chamberlain
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether it is the view of His Majesty's Government that all European countries should be invited to participate in the Council of Europe; and whether he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Chamberlain
Whilst appreciating what the Foreign Secretary says, may I ask him if he will bear in mind that there are still very great psychological and moral values in initiative of this kind even though it is not accepted, and also that the Council is to be called the Council of Europe and not of Western Europe.
§ Mr. R. A. Butler
Without wishing to enter into the latter part of the right hon. Gentleman's observation, I should like to ask him how long this consideration is likely to take?
