34. Mr. Dalyell

asked the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on his talks with the Australian Government on renewing the Anglo-Australian Agreement on Woomera.

Mr. Whitlock

Preliminary discussions are currently proceeding at official level with a view to renegotiating the terms of the Joint United Kingdom/Australia Weapons Project between the two countries, which includes Woomera, after its expiry in June, 1968.

The responsibility for the details of this Agreement rests with my right hon. Friend the Minister of Technology.
