HC Deb 26 April 1961 vol 639 c420
39. Mr. Grimond

asked the Lord Privy Seal what recent proposals Her Majesty's Government have made on the future of West Berlin.

Mr. Heath

None, Sir.

Mr. Grimond

Is it not time that the Government gave their attention to this subject, particularly in view of the importance Mr. Khrushchev attaches to it? Might there not now be put forward proposals for the whole of the city, possibly coupled with a proposal that some institutions of the United Nations should be moved there?

Mr. Heath

I shall take note of that suggestion and others which have been put forward. The view of Her Majesty's Government is that settlement in Berlin must be part of an overall settlement.
