HC Deb 15 June 1961 vol 642 cc70-1W
50. Mr. Critchley

asked the Prime Minister whether he will take the initiative in setting up a general staff to direct the political warfare of the Free World

The Prime Minister

I agree with my hon. Friend on the need for the greater unity of the Free World. I made a speech in Boston in April in which I tried to give expression to this idea. I said that we need a wider unity transcending traditional barriers; that we need unity of purpose, of method, of organisation. As to translating this into practice, there are frequent consultations at every level between us and our allies, and our methods of consultation are under constant review with the aim of making our unity more effective.
