As my right hon. Friend informed the House of 5th April, President Eisenhower's proposal is being discussed at present through diplomatic channels. But it is certainly a matter of which account must be taken in the forthcoming talks.
In view of the terms of the Resolution passed by the General Assembly in November last, can the Minister say whether the conversations will cover the whole field of disarmament, both conventional and unconventional, including atomic and hydrogen weapons?
Is the Minister aware that he has the good wishes of both sides of the House in entering these conversations, and that we hope sincerely that an agreement will be reached on these matters which are vital to the future welfare of the world?
