HC Deb 28 March 1962 vol 656 c123W
Mr. Henderson

asked the Lord Privy Seal whether, in view of the United Nations General Assembly Resolution of 24th November, 1961, it is now the policy of Her Majesty's Government to agree to a ban on the use of nuclear weapons as a means of war, as part of a general disarmament treaty.

Mr. P. Thomas

Her Majesty's Government believe that the best way to prevent the use of nuclear weapons is to eliminate them and all other offensive weapons from national arsenals so that war either nuclear or conventional cannot be waged.
