HC Deb 06 March 1947 vol 434 c110W
129. Mr. Zilliacus

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether, in view of the fact that the Charter of the United Nations does not impose any obligation on the permanent members of the Security Council to coerce each other and depends for its efficacy in guaranteeing peace on their will to agreement and loyalty to their obligation to refrain from the use or threat of force in their international relations and to settle their differences by pacific means, the collective security that the Government consider it necessary to establish before further reducing our armaments will be based on U.N.O.

Mr. Mayhew

Yes, Sir.
