HC Deb 04 May 1959 vol 605 c3W
52. Mr. Harold Davies

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if the statement made in paragraph 3 of the Memorandum on Germany, Command Paper No. 9213, 12th July, 1954, to the effect that the German Federal Government can rearm only with the agreement of the Western Occupying Powers, still represents Government policy.

Mr. Profumo

No. The statement in question described arrangements which were in force under the Occupation Statute of 1949. This statute was revoked in 1954.
