HC Deb 13 December 1962 vol 669 cc102-3W
Q12. Mr. McMaster

asked the Prime Minister whether, in his coming talks with President de Gaulle and with President Kennedy, he will suggest that Great Britain, France and the United States adopt a new joint shipping and shipbuilding policy, designed to secure the universal reduction of building and operating subsidies and the abandonment of flag discrimination and other practices which tend to inflate shipping costs and to distort the free pattern of international shipping traffic.

Q14 and 16. Mr. Henderson

asked the Prime Minister (1) whether he will discuss with President Kennedy the need for closer consultation on those aspects of international policy and of common defence strategy that are directly related to the threat of nuclear war;

(2) in view of his forthcoming discussion with President de Gaulle and President Kennedy, if he will make a statement on the extent to which it is the policy of Her Majesty's Government to support the integration of allied nuclear forces into a single North Atlantic Treaty Organisation nuclear force.

Q19. Mr. Bennett

asked the Prime Minister whether, during his forthcoming conversations with President Kennedy in the Bahamas, he will take the opportunity to discuss British policy in regard to support for a peaceful settlement of the Congo-Katanga controversy.

The Prime Minister

I would refer the right hon. and hon. Members to the previous replies which I have given to Questions about the subjects of my forthcoming talks with President de Gaulle and President Kennedy.
