HC Deb 22 June 1972 vol 839 c148W
Rear-Admiral Morgan-Giles

asked the Minister of State for Defence whether he is satisfied with the present size and deployment of the British presence East of Suez, following the Moscow Summit meeting; and if he will make a statement.

Lord Balniel

Yes. We welcome the progress made at the Moscow Summit; but it would be wrong to respond to it by changing our defence priorities.
