§ 30. Mr. E. L. Mallalieu
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what are the necessary conditions of international confidence which would enable him to propose at the United 762 Nations a commission to study the transfer of armaments to a World Security Authority.
Before we could consider advancing any such proposal, there would need to be a relaxation of international tension and substantial progress in measures of disarmament.
§ Mr. Mallalieu
Would not the right hon. and gallant Gentleman agree that there is unlikely to be any security felt at any international conference until there is a Security Authority? Would not he take some steps to set about the creation of such an authority?
I do not think that any country would be able to support an organisation like that unless it felt greater confidence and greater security from some steps in disarmament.
