HC Deb 27 January 1960 vol 616 cc35-6W
67. Mr. Swingler

asked the Minister of Defence, in the light of Her Majesty's Government's policy of increasing nuclear weapons in the West to counter- balance Soviet preponderance in conventional forces, what changes in defence measures he will now take in view of Mr. Khrushchev's announcement of a substantial reduction in Soviet armed forces.

Mr. Watkinson

The announcement does not of itself call for any changes in our defence measures.
