HC Deb 12 December 1950 vol 482 cc149-50W
109. Mr. Harrison

asked the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations if he will consider a special approach to the Commonwealth countries with the purpose of seeking their co-operation and acceptance of a greater proportion of the burden of rearmament, in view of the burden on this country.

Mr. Gordon-Walker

We are in constant consultation with other Commonwealth Governments on many of the problems arising from rearmament, but I cannot disclose the nature of any approaches that we have made or intend to make to those Governments.
