HC Deb 29 May 1963 vol 678 c125W
39. Mr. Grimond

asked the Lord Privy Seal if he will suggest to the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies that in reply to the Russian proposals for a nuclear-free zone in the Mediterranean, they should propose a disarmament agreement covering the Arab States, Israel and Persia.

Mr. Heath:

No. Any initiative in proposing regional disarmament plans should first come from the Governments concerned.
