HC Deb 19 February 1969 vol 778 cc106-7W
Mr. Hooley

asked the Secretary of State for Defence whether British scientists sponsored by his Department will be serving with the group of consultant experts appointed to advise the Secretary General of the United Nations on chemical and bacteriological weapons.

Mr. John Morris

Each member of the consultant experts advising the Secretary-General of the United Nations on Chemical and Bacteriological (biological) weapons has been appointed in his individual capacity. But it is open to them all to seek such assistance as they may require. To that extent scientists sponsored by my Department are available to, and have been consulted by, the British representative.
