I beg to present a petition organised by the Dartford Branch of the United Nations' Association and signed by 8,000 people in the Dartford district, who, even at this late hour, believe it is possible to have peace if prominent statesmen in various countries would give much more thought to the earnest desires of ordinary people throughout the world to live in peace and friendship with each other. The Prayer to the Petition is as follows: Wherefore your Petitioners pray your honourable House to take immediate action by all means in your power which will lead to the outlawing of weapons of mass destruction by all nations, and to the setting up of stringent safeguards to ensure that they all comply. Your Petitioners as in duty bound, will ever pray.

To lie upon the Table.
