HC Deb 06 February 1967 vol 740 c218W
Mr. Biggs-Davison

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what part was played by the Minister of State for Disarmament in the recent accord between the United States of America and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics on the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. George Brown

Proposals for a non-proliferation treaty are being discussed with the Soviet Union and with our North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies. My noble friend the Minister of State with special responsibility for disarmament has played a full part in this consultation. Progress has been satisfactory, but considerable problems remain. It is too early to speak of an accord.
