§ 83. Mr. Frank Allaun
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he will agree to ending hydrogen bomb tests from 1st January as officially proposed by 16W Marshal Bulganin, as a first step away from the danger of world war.
§ Mr. Ormsby-Gore
No. I do not wish to anticipate the reply to Mr. Bulganin's letter. But it appears that Mr. Bulganin still envisages the suspension of nuclear tests in isolation from a disarmament agreement. The hon. Gentleman will be aware that this is a proposal which has been rejected by the United Nations as well as by Her Majesty's Government.
