§ 51. Mr. McNamara
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what representations he has made to the Government of the People's Republic of China for the Chinese Government to negotiate on the signing of a non-proliferation treaty.
§ Mr. Padley
None. We have already made it plan that we should like to see the People's Republic of China participating in the disarmament negotiations. But they have so far declined to do so, and have denounced a non-proliferation treaty as a plot to deprive the non-nuclear countries of their rights.
