HC Deb 16 December 1957 vol 580 cc15-6W
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 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.
