Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Defence: Foreign Service (Allowances) (13 Jun 1956)

Mr Anthony Nutting: If the hon. Member will forward his evidence I will examine it, but I am advised that there is no difference whatsoever in Foreign Service allowances. Perhaps the hon. Member is thinking of the language allowance, which is not included in the Foreign Service allowance and is not payable to temporary officers.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Defence: United Nations (Antarctica) (13 Jun 1956)

Mr Anthony Nutting: As I think I have said before, the proposal which my hon. Friend makes for investing in United Nations sovereignty over this area is not in keeping with the principles of the Charter as it stands, nor is there any provision in the Charter for it. As to the Committee to which my hon. Friend refers, it has not yet been convened, and it is only to make recommendations to the twelfth session of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Defence: Middle East (Supply of Arms) (13 Jun 1956)

Mr Anthony Nutting: Her Majesty's Government have no definite information that would confirm the assumption on which this Question is based. Their policy on arms to the Middle East countries remains as stated by my right hon. and learned Friend in reply to my hon. Friend the Member for Aberdeenshire, East (Sir R. Boothby) on 28th March.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Defence: Middle East (Supply of Arms) (13 Jun 1956)

Mr Anthony Nutting: We have no definite information about their supply. If we have definite information we shall take that information into account in deciding our arms deliveries policy.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Defence: Middle East (Supply of Arms) (13 Jun 1956)

Mr Anthony Nutting: Both quantity and quality are taken into account in deciding the delivery of arms to both sides, as my right hon. and learned Friend and I have said on repeated occasions.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Defence: Euratom (13 Jun 1956)

Mr Anthony Nutting: The proposed scope and powers of Euratom have already been set out in a report which was adopted by the Governments of Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, and The Netherlands at a meeting in Venice on 29th–30th May. This report contemplates that a permanent connection would be established within the Organisation for European Economic Co-operation between Euratom and the other...

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Defence: Euratom (13 Jun 1956)

Mr Anthony Nutting: Notwithstanding what has been said by M. Monnet, for whom I have the greatest respect, the Euratom plan as it stands is incompatible with the interests of the United Kingdom, because Euratom is to have a monopoly of the ownership and distribution of raw materials and will fix prices and control the use of those materials which it sells to outside countries. That is not compatible with United...

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Defence: Atomic Test Explosions (13 Jun 1956)

Mr Anthony Nutting: As my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister told the House on 7th June, Her Majesty's Government will take every appropriate opportunity of discussing methods of regulating and limiting test explosions which take account of their position and that of other Powers.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Defence: Atomic Test Explosions (13 Jun 1956)

Mr Anthony Nutting: I do not know quite what the right hon. Gentleman is complaining about, because in March this year M. Moch, on behalf of France, and I, on behalf of the United Kingdom, gave effect to the proposal which the right hon. Gentleman makes in this very Question for the limitation and ultimately the prohibiton of test explosions, but that plan was rejected as inadequate by the representative of the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Defence: Atomic Test Explosions (13 Jun 1956)

Mr Anthony Nutting: I will, of course, bear that in mind, and that is why we anticipated those conclusions in the plan which France and the United Kingdom launched in the Disarmament Sub-Committee, and I should have thought that the House would have given the Government some credit for that and for trying to get agreement on this question. So far, we have failed to get any reaction from the Soviet Union other...

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Defence: Atomic Test Explosions (13 Jun 1956)

Mr Anthony Nutting: The response of the Government to the offer was contained in the proposals which were launched in the Disarmament Sub-Committee, namely, to agree that, subject to a staged and phased programme, there should be prohibition of test explosions, but that those must be subject to effective international control. Whatever the conclusions which the right hon. Gentleman draws from the Report of the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Defence: Atomic Test Explosions (13 Jun 1956)

Mr Anthony Nutting: I do not think that the right hon. Gentleman is correct. It may be true that the very biggest tests are self-policed, or whatever the phrase has been, but it is also true that there are a number of test explosions which can take place without any detection.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Defence: Atomic Test Explosions (13 Jun 1956)

Mr Anthony Nutting: We have done so, and since the right hon. Gentleman has obviously not read the proposals which were launched in the Disarmament Sub-Committee, I would invite him to read them. He will see that they cover all kinds of tests, large or small.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Defence: Germany (Compensation Law) (13 Jun 1956)

Mr Anthony Nutting: Her Majesty's Government count on the Federal German Republic to fulfil its obligation under the Bonn Settlement Convention to provide adequate compensation for persons who were persecuted during the Nazi rágime on grounds of nationality. The Bill incorporating the revised text of the Federal Compensation Law of 1953 does not appear to fulfil this obligation, and further representations in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Defence: Germany (Compensation Law) (13 Jun 1956)

Mr Anthony Nutting: We shall continue to do what we can in this respect. I would remind the right hon. Gentleman that the final reading of this Bill in the Upper House of the German Parliament takes place this month, and we hope that it will be suitably amended in the sense which he and the Government desire.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Defence: Cyprus N.a.T.O. (13 Jun 1956)

Mr Anthony Nutting: My right hon. and learned Friend does not consider that any useful purpose would be served by referring the present situation in Cyprus to N.A.T.O.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Defence: Cyprus N.a.T.O. (13 Jun 1956)

Mr Anthony Nutting: We deeply regret the deterioration in relations within N.A.T.O. which has been caused by this dispute, but that is not to say that N.A.T.O. is the correct machinery for resolving the present difficulties in relation to Cyprus.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Defence: Cyprus N.a.T.O. (13 Jun 1956)

Mr Anthony Nutting: It may have escaped the attention of the right hon. Gentleman that the Middle East is outside the area of N.A.T.O.
