HC Deb 28 July 1964 vol 699 c270W
Q15. Sir Richard Glyn

asked the Prime Minister whether he will give an assurance that Her Majesty's Ministers will ask Parliament to consider a suitable commemoration of the 150 years of peace between Her Majesty's Dominions and the United States of America which was inaugurated by the Treaty of Ghent on 21st December. 1814.

The Prime Minister

Her Majesty's Government are considering ways in which this anniversary of one hundred and fifty years of peace between Britain and the United States might be suitably commemorated. They would naturally welcome Parliamentary recognition of this occasion, but I am sure that hon. Members will need no official encouragement by Her Majesty's Government to make a gesture of this kind.
