67. Sir R. Acland

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he will ascertain from the countries of the Atlantic Pact how many Centurion tanks they require before making his decision about the sale of tanks to Egypt.

Mr. Ernest Davies

The requirements of other North Atlantic Treaty Powers of all types of equipment are under constant review. These requirements will continue to be taken fully into account in reaching any decision about the sale of arms to other countries, including Egypt.
