§ 36. Mr. Woodhouse
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will propose at the United Nations the calling of a review conference on the United Nations Charter under Chapter 18, so that those countries which wish to strengthen the United Nations can assess accurately the feasibility of any substantial reform.
§ Mr. George Thomson
As I said on 26th January, in reply to the hon. Member for Moray and Nairn (Mr. G. Campbell), Her Majesty's Government favour holding a review conference as soon as the international climate offers some prospect of success. But I think the feasibility of any substantial reform designed to strengthen the United Nations can be better assessed during the discussions of the Special Committee on peace keeping which the Assembly has just decided to set up.
