asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will support the Italian Government's plan for a programme of extended technical co-operation within the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation.
§ Mr. George Thomson
The Italian Government's plan relates to an important European problem and Her Majesty's Government share the concern about technological progress in Europe that lies behind the Italian memorandum. We are studying closely amongst the Departments concerned the specific proposals which have been put forward and will be ready to give our considered views when the matter comes up for discussion within N.A.T.O.
