HC Deb 06 December 1962 vol 668 c1497
Q5. Mr. A. Henderson

asked the Prime Minister whether he has now received a reply from Mr. Khrushchev to his letter of 28th October.

The Prime Minister

Yes, Sir.

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.
