Is the Lord Privy Seal aware that great concern as well as great interest was shown in the House at the report of this speech in Paris? While there was considerable sympathy for General Norstad's view that there must be political control of the use of atomic weapons in the alliance, there was a very strong feeling on this side of the House about his other proposal that intermediate range missiles should be put as tactical weapons under General Norstad's command on the Continent? When are the Government going to break their deafening silence on this question and give us their views on a matter of great concern, not only to this country but to the rest of the alliance?
Is it not the case that General Norstad is responsible to this Government, as well as to the other fourteen N.A.T.O. Governments? When are Her Majesty's Government going to speak up for Britain in this alliance?
