§ 62 and 63. Mr. G. Brown
asked the Minister of Defence (1) whether he will make a statement on the changes in the Government's weapon policy;
(2) why he officially communicated to Foreign Service attaches that an important decision on the Government's weapons policy was impending before 52W giving this information to the House.
§ Mr. Sandys
The phrase, to which the right hon. Gentleman refers, occurred in the course of a joke which I made at a lunch party with the Foreign Service Attaches. It was not in any sense an official communication.
