HC Deb 30 July 1962 vol 664 c378

8.59 a.m.

Mr. E. L. Mallalieu (Brigg)

The House is grateful to my hon. Friend the Member for Southampton, Itchen (Dr. King) for raising this question of security and I am particularly grateful as it enables me also to raise a question of security.

The initiative was taken at the last Prime Ministers' conference, where a most remarkable statement was made to the effect—and in this Her Majesty's Government had the agreement of every Prime Minister of the Commonwealth— that peace in the world could not be maintained unless there was a world security authority backing world law and with world courts and a world force. My complaint is that nothing has been done by Her Majesty's Government since—

The Question having been proposed after Ten o'clock on Monday evening and the debate having continued for half-an-hour, Mr. SPEAKER adjourned the House, without Question put, pursuant to the Standing Order.

Adjourned accordingly at Nine o'clock a.m.
