§ 31. Mr. Noel-Baker
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs who will represent Her Majesty's Government at the forthcoming meeting of the United Nations Disarmament Commission, and in the sub-committee which it is proposed to set up; and who will be the experts by whom this representative will be advised.
§ Mr. Selwyn Lloyd
Her Majesty's Government were represented at the Disarmament Commission meeting on 9th April by their Permanent Representative on the Commission, Sir Pierson Dixon. Their representation on the sub-committee, which it is hoped the Commission will agree to set up, will have to depend to some extent on where and when the subcommittee decides to meet.
§ Mr. E. Fletcher
Will the Minister bear in mind the desirability of representing that, if possible, the sub-committee should 777 sit in London, certainly in Europe, and not in America?
§ Mr. Noel-Baker
May we take it that the Government will be represented by a Minister and that he will have expert advice of the highest quality?
§ Lieut.-Colonel Lipton
Will the right hon. and learned Gentleman say whether it is within the terms of this Commission to consider German disarmament?
