HC Deb 24 July 1967 vol 751 c32W
Mr. Hugh Jenkins

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he will promote a resolution at the United Nations outlawing the use of napalm.

Mr. George Brown

I do not consider that it would be appropriate for this country to take an initiative on the lines suggested. Napalm, like all other types of weapons, would naturally be covered by a general disarmament agreement, for which we are working as our ultimate objective in the disarmament negotiations. The best hope of progress lies in this field.
