HC Deb 15 December 1953 vol 522 c199
45 and 46. Mr. Edelman

asked the Prime Minister (1) what action he has taken in connection with President Eisenhower's proposal for an international atomic energy organisation;

(2) what further arrangements he has made to exchange information concerning atomic energy with the United States of America.

47. Mr. A. Henderson

asked the Prime Minister whether he will make a statement on the Bermuda Conference.

The Prime Minister (Sir Winston Churchill)

Perhaps I may thank the hon. Member for his courtesy in offering to put off his Question because of the fog.

I propose to deal with these matters in the foreign affairs debate on Thursday.

Mr. Henderson

In view of the fact that there were nearly 200 correspondents in attendance at the Conference, may I ask the Prime Minister if he can say why no Press conference was held?

The Prime Minister

The object was an international conference and not a Press conference.

Mr. Henderson

May I ask the Prime Minister whether the conference now taking place in Paris is also an international conference, and has not Mr. Dulles found it desirable to hold a Press conference?

The Prime Minister

There are no absolute rigid rules on these matters.
