HC Deb 25 October 1954 vol 531 c216W
77. Mr. Emrys Hughes

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what representations were made to the Federal Chancellor which resulted in Dr. Adenauer's declaration that atomic, chemical and bacteriological weapons would not be manufactured in Germany.

Sir A. Eden

None. The declaration was a voluntary act by the German Chancellor which contributed greatly to the success of the negotiations.
