§ 46. Mr. Hector Hughes
asked the Prime Minister what further steps he has taken since 1st November last to secure international agreement for the control of nuclear and atomic weapons.
§ The Prime Minister
It is the view of Her Majesty's Government that action to this end should be taken through the United Nations. The United Nations Disarmament Sub-Committee, which it is hoped will meet in February, will be considering amongst other suggestions the Anglo-French proposals for a disarmament programme including the elimination of nuclear weapons.
§ Mr. Hughes
As this is a matter of such enormous and world-wide importance, will the Prime Minister consider issuing a White Paper so that the nation might be informed of what is being done in this very great matter?
