§ 6. Mr. Longden
asked the Lord Privy Seal what attempts have recently been made by the Military Staff Committee of the Security Council to negotiate the special agreements referred to in Article 43 of the Charter without which the sanctions intended to enable the Security Council to fulfil its primary responsibility for maintaining international peace and security cannot be enforced; and what are the reasons still preventing the conclusion of these special agreements eighteen years after the Charter was signed.
§ Mr. Longden
Could not the Soviet Union be reminded that Chapter 7 of the Charter cannot be brought into operation unless it is so decided by the Security Council, on which the Soviet Union retains its veto? What is the object of holding up the operation of these sanctions?
