HC Deb 09 March 1949 vol 462 c115W
15. Mr. Philips Price

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will make a statement to assure the nations on the eastern border of the region affected by the Atlantic Pact that those participating in that pact are morally bound to give all help to threatened members but that commitment to war and supplies to carry it on must in democratic countries have Parliamentary sanction.

Mr. Bevin

Since the negotiations for a North Atlantic Pact have not yet been concluded, it would be wrong for me to make any statement of this kind about it.
