Orders of the Day — Defence(Nuclear Deterrent and Nassau Agreement) (23 Nov 1964)

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Minister of Disarmament (19 Nov 1964)

Mr R.A. Butler: May I ask the right hon. Gentleman who will answer for this Minister in the House of Commons? Secondly, how soon can we expect a comprehensive statement on Socialist policy for disarmament, as opposed to the original ideas of the Prime Minister himself?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Minister of Disarmament (19 Nov 1964)

Mr R.A. Butler: The right hon. Gentleman must be aware that a full statement was made by me at Geneva when I was Foreign Secretary on the positive proposals for disarmament put forward by the late Government.

Orders of the Day — Machinery of Government Bill (19 Nov 1964)

Mr R.A. Butler: We have had an interesting and quite lengthy debate. The right hon. and learned Attorney-General, whom I congratulate on his first speech in his new office, said that this was a purely technical Bill, and he made what sounded like a technical speech in support of it, going through all the details with some precision. We are obliged to him for explaining most of, but, as I shall show, not all...

Orders of the Day — Machinery of Government Bill (19 Nov 1964)

Mr R.A. Butler: The hon. Member has been in the House quite long enough to know that I am not making a savage attack. He has grossly distorted the position. Our attitude is clear. We shall not vote against the Second Reading, but we shall seek to make a great many Amendments in Committee, of which I give the Government notice. I have already given notice of the two main Amendments which we have in mind, but...

Orders of the Day — Machinery of Government Bill (19 Nov 1964)

Mr R.A. Butler: Having made a very able and rather long speech himself, and having interrupted most of the other speeches to which I have listened, I do not think that the hon. Member for Nelson and Colne will object if I do not give way. I turn to the Clause which concerns Secretaries of State. Are we clear that one Secretary of State has been appointed without a salary, or have they all been appointed...

Orders of the Day — Machinery of Government Bill (19 Nov 1964)

Mr R.A. Butler: Then there is the question of the Prime Minister appointing the salaries of Ministers of State—Clause 2(1,b). How far does that link up with the statement on Monday? Then, it was stated that there would be two classes of Ministers of State, one getting £7,625 and the other £5,625. Why should this discretion be left to the Prime Minister? We shall be ready to put down Amendments to try to...

Ministry of Overseas Development (10 Nov 1964)

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign Countries (Sale of Arms) (27 Jul 1964)

Mr R.A. Butler: There are certain countries, such as those of the Soviet bloc, Far Eastern Communist countries, and Cuba, to whom it is our policy not to supply arms. Requests from other countries are considered in the light of their political, economic and strategic implications. It is not Her Majesty's Government's policy to name the countries with whom they are negotiating the sale of arms and military...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign Countries (Sale of Arms) (27 Jul 1964)

Mr R.A. Butler: I gave in my original Answer a description of the countries—the Soviet bloc, Far Eastern Communist countries, and so forth—to which we do not supply arms. It must, therefore, be derived that the other countries are possible countries to which we should supply arms. When we consider the export of arms we take account of any likelihood of their being re-exported or needed for aggression, or...

Mr R.A. Butler: The question of promoting good relations with regard to Gibraltar was discussed during the Spanish Foreign Minister's visit to London in 1960 and the visit to Madrid in 1961 of my right hon.
