HC Deb 05 February 1963 vol 671 c232
Q1. Mr. Donnelly

asked the Prime Minister whether he will make a statement regarding his latest official communication with the Prime Minister of Belgium.

The Prime Minister (Mr. Harold Macmillan)

Any communications I may have with M. Lefevre would be confidential.

Mr. Donnelly

In the light of recent events, what consideration has the right hon. Gentleman given to the possibility of raising the status of the Western European Union Standing Council which is meeting in London, and possibly transferring it to Brussels, where, in fact, it came into existence as a result of the Treaty of Brussels?

The Prime Minister

I will take note of that proposal.
