HC Deb 18 November 1968 vol 773 c190W
57. Mr. Archer

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what communication he has received from the Secretary-General of the United Nations on proposals for a summit meeting in 1969 to discuss the functioning of the United Nations; and what was the substance of his reply.

Mr. Goronwy Roberts

The text of the Secretary-General's letter of 7th October to my right hon. Friends, M. Debré, Mr. Gromyko and Mr. Rusk is available in the Library of the House. U Thant has been informed that Her Majesty's Government would give sympathetic and constructive attention to his suggestion for a meeting of the Foreign Ministers of the four major powers, which he hoped might lead to a meeting of Heads of State and Government.
