HC Deb 22 March 1955 vol 538 c163W
51. Mr. Emrys Hughes

asked the Prime Minister if he will take the initiative in calling a three-power conference for the purpose of discussing Civil Defence.

The Prime Minister

I am not quite certain what three Powers the hon. Member has in mind. But, in any case, I see no need for such a conference. Satisfactory arrangements already exist within the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation for the discussion of civil defence with our Allies, and in particular there is regular contact between British and American experts in this field.
