§ 43. Mr. Warbey
asked the Prime Minister whether the speech of the Foreign Secretary to the Performing Rights Society on 29th June, on the need to strengthen peaceful co-existence, represents the policy of Her Majesty's Government.
§ Mr. Warbey
As the Foreign Secretary has now come off Dr. Adenauer's high horse and indicated his readiness to consider a negotiated settlement of the problems of Berlin and Germany, will the Prime Minister follow suit? Will the Prime Minister recognise that in these days of nuclear weapons the posturing of a statesman can be highly dangerous to the peace of the world and the safety of the people of these islands?
§ The Prime Minister
What the Foreign Secretary was referring to in that speech, which I have read, was the need for peaceful co-existence, by which I think he meant good neighbour policies and not perpetual political and economic propaganda warfare. Peaceful coexistence, of which we all have some experience, can be either one or the other.
