HC Deb 30 November 1972 vol 847 c214W
45. Mr. William Hamilton

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what representation he has made to the French Government urging them to desist from further hydrogen bombs tests in the South Pacific.

Mr. Amery

The French Government are aware of our views. We hope that France, in common with other countries that have not done so, will in due course accede to the Partial Test Ban Treaty of 1963 which prohibits nuclear testing in the atmosphere.
