HC Deb 12 March 1963 vol 673 cc140-1W
81. Mr. Wade

asked the Lord Privy Seal what further recent discussions have taken place with the Government of the United States of America on how to break the nuclear tests deadlock with the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.

Mr. Heath

Immediately prior to the resumption on 12th February of the Disarmament Conference at Geneva, my hon. Friend the Minister of State for Foreign Affairs visited Washington in order to discuss the position with Her Majesty's Ambassador and members of the United States Administration. Since the Conference has resumed, there has been the usual close consultation between the United States and United Kingdom Delegations on possible ways to reach agreement with the Soviet Union.
