§ 4. Mr. Baldry
asked the Secretary of State for Defenee when he last met the secretary general of the Northern Atlantic Treaty Organisation; and if he discussed the role of United States bases in the United Kingdom.

I met the NATO Secretary General at the meeting of the defence planning committee last Thursday and Friday. A copy of the communiqué issued after that meeting has been placed in the Library. There was no discussion specifically of the role of US bases in the United Kingdom.
