HC Deb 15 May 1985 vol 79 c137W
Mr. Cohen

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether Her Majesty's Government consult their North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies and the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation itself before deciding upon their voting position at the United Nations on all disarmament resolutions; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Luce

Although the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation is not represented as a formal group within the United Nations system, delegations of its member states consult closely in the margins of most United Nations disarmament meetings, especially on those arms control and disarmament resolutions which have implications for our common security.
