§ Mr. Birch
Agreement has now been reached in the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation on the characteristics of an improved round of small arms ammunition. No round yet developed possesses these characteristics in full. Experimental work is therefore proceeding on the development of such a round and of weapons to fire it. The object is to produce a round and weapons which will be accepted as standard by all N.A.T.O countries.
§ Mr. Shinwell
Does it not mean that the Government have not taken the advice of their expert military advisers?
