HC Deb 14 January 1964 vol 687 c13W
Q14. Mr. Shinwell

asked the Prime Minister if he will state the occasions since 1959 when the late and present Leaders of Her Majesty's Opposition were formally consulted on foreign affairs and defence, respectively.

The Prime Minister

I am not sure what the right hon. Gentleman means by formal consultation. The Leader of the Opposition and his predecessor have, of course, discussed issues of foreign policy and defence with me, and with my right hon. Friend the Member for Bromley (Mr. H. Macmillan), on several occasions.
