§ Mr. George Thomson
asked the Minister of State for Defence if he will give details of the composition and command structure of the proposed new Air Defence Council in Singapore mentioned in paragraph 18 of Command Paper No.4592.
§ Lord Balniel
No. The proposed Air Defence Council is among the matters to be considered by Ministers of the five Governments at their forthcoming meeting in April. It would be inappropriate to give details in advance of this meeting.
