HC Deb 31 January 1962 vol 652 cc101-2W
68. Mr. Emrys Hughes

asked the Minister of Defence to what extent he consults with high ranking retired officers with experience on the staff of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation on problems relating to defence strategy in Europe.

Mr. Watkinson

I have no arrangements for formal consultation on the lines the hon. Member suggests, but if I wished to consult a retired officer on any point I would of course do so.
