HC Deb 19 June 1961 vol 642 c86W
Mr. A. Henderson

asked the Lord Privy Seal what consideration has been given by Her Majesty's Government to proposing that, pending German reunification, the whole of Berlin should be made a free city, with its security guaranteed by symbolic contingents of the four occupying powers, together with neutral troop units under the protectorate of the United Nations.

Mr. Heath

Her Majesty's Government do not consider that the problem of Berlin can be solved in isolation from the other questions of Germany and European security with which it is intimately connected. We have made proposals that would satisfy that need, and we stand by them.
