HC Deb 28 July 1964 vol 699 c267W
Mr. P. Noel-Baker

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what progress has been made in the Committee of Eighteen Nations on President Johnson's proposal for a freeze of strategic nuclear delivery systems; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. P. Thomas

The proposal was discussed at Geneva on 9th July, when the United States representative gave some further particulars of it. But I am afraid there has been no progress, because the Russians still will not accept the proposal.
