HC Deb 08 November 1966 vol 735 c260W
78. Mr. Sandys

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the French Government have given an unqualified assurance to the other signatories of the Brussels Treaty of 1954 that, notwithstanding France's withdrawal from the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, she still regards herself as unreservedly committed to fulfil her obligations under Article V of that treaty.

Mr. George Thomson

The Assembly of Western European Union has asked the Council for an assurance on this point. The Council is still considering the terms of its reply.
