§ 48. Mr. G. Brown
asked the Prime Minister if he will make a statement about the discussions which Sir Edwin Plowden recently had in Washington.
§ The Prime Minister
Sir Edwin Plowden and the Permanent Secretary to the Ministry of Defence went to Washington to continue the discussions begun during my own visit in October. Further discussions between British and American experts are taking place, and it would not be appropriate at this stage to add to what was said in the communiqué issued at the end of my talks with President Eisenhower.108W
