§ 23. Mr. Tilney
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether, in order to stimulate public interest in the Atlantic Community, he will consult our allies in the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, with a view to the adoption of a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation flag.
§ Mr. Tilney
Would not my hon. Friend agree that N.A.T.O. is as important an association for peace as the United Nations who have a well known flag, and does not he think that by focusing the eyes of the public on one symbol more and more people in the Western World will come to recognise the North 1916 Atlantic Treaty Organisation as a partnership for peace and for an expanding oceanic economy?
§ Mr. Nutting
No doubt those considerations will be before the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation when considering this matter.
§ Mr. Noel-Baker
Is not the purpose of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation to support the Charter of the United Nations?
§ Major Legge-Bourke
Is my hon. Friend aware that the Union Jack has been quite good enough for a great many people up to now?
