HC Deb 02 April 1968 vol 762 c74W
Q8. Mr. Raymond Fletcher

asked the Prime Minister if he will consider the amalgamation of the Ministries of Defence and Overseas Development, together with appropriate sections of the Foreign Office, into a Ministry of External Security.

The Prime Minister

No, but, as my hon. Friend's suggestion is a highly original one, perhaps he would care to let me have details of what he has in mind.
