§ Q5. Mr. A. Henderson
asked the Prime Minister whether he has now received a reply from Mr. Khrushchev to his letter of 28th October.
§ Mr. Henderson
Is the Prime Minister going to publish the reply? If so, will he tell us now whether Mr. Khrushchev endorsed his own suggestion that following the settlement of the Cuban problem the way is now open to a general arrangement on armaments, and especially an earlier nuclear test ban treaty?
§ The Prime Minister
As this message was not transmitted over the radio but given to me by private letter, I did not think it right for me to publish it. It was a long letter and I was glad to get it, but I do not intend to go into detail over this matter.
