HC Deb 29 January 1962 vol 652 c705
27. Mr. Warbey

asked the Lord Privy Seal what conclusions were reached at the Anglo-American discussions on the future of the United Nations.

Mr. Godber

I would refer the hon. Gentleman to my right hon. Friend's reply on 23rd January to my hon. Friend the Member for Haltemprice (Mr. Wall).

Mr. Warbey

That does not take us very far. Can the Minister of State say specifically what was the outcome of these discussions and whether it is now proposed that there should be alterations in the procedure of the United Nations so that the growing domination of the General Assembly by the uncommitted nations can be counteracted and the supremacy of the Great Powers can be reasserted?

Mr. Godber

That was not the purpose of the discussions. They were general discussions covering a whole range of matters concerned with United Nations procedure and the current session of the General Assembly. As my right hon. Friend indicated, they covered a wide range of topics, but certainly not on the lines the hon. Member has suggested.
