HC Deb 14 December 1961 vol 651 cc76-7W
94. Mr. P. Noel-Baker

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many officials are employed in Government Departments on the full-time study of the problems of disarmament.

Mr. Brooke

The main effort in the study of the problems of disarmament is centred in the Foreign Office. As my hon. Friend the Parliamentary Under-Secretary indicated in reply to the right hon. Gentleman on 20th November, it is not the practice to give precise numbers of those serving in the Departments of the Foreign Office.
