HC Deb 16 May 1966 vol 728 c168W
59. Mr. Philip Noel-Baker

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will lay as a White Paper a report on the work done since 1964 by the disarmament research department of the Foreign Office.

Mr. M. Stewart

As I have previously explained to the House, the Arms Control and Disarmament Research Unit was set up to conduct research into the problems of arms control and disarmament and to make available the results to those responsible for British policy on disarmament. To this end, the Research Unit has undertaken studies, and has maintained contacts with official and unofficial bodies working on disarmament, both here and abroad. I regret that I cannot provide information about these studies, which are confidential.
