HC Deb 06 May 1958 vol 587 c91W
50. Mr. P. Noel-Baker

asked the Prime Minister why the Statute of the European Nuclear Energy Agency empowered this agency to set up an inspectorate to control nuclear disarmament.

The Prime Minister

The object of the security control established by the Organisation for European Economic Co-operation is to ensure, in advance of any general agreement for nuclear disarmament, that joint undertakings established by the European Nuclear Energy Agency, and assistance provided by it, do not further any military purpose.
