Oral Answers to Questions — Moscow (Foreign Secretary's Visit) (27 Jul 1964)

Mr R.A. Butler: I do not think that the Government take a hostile attitude to them. They take up an attitude in concert with our allies of criticism of certain aspects of Mr. Rapacki's proposals. That is all.

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Vietnam (20 Jul 1964)

Mr R.A. Butler: No, Sir. I do not accept these assumptions, particularly as hon. Members will have seen that, on 23rd June, President Johnson reiterated that "the United States intends no rashness and seeks no wider war."

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Egypt (Tripartite Agreement) (20 Jul 1964)

Mr R.A. Butler: I think that the best thing would be to refer my hon. Friend to the statement made by my right hon. Friend the Member for Bromley (Mr. H. Macmillan) on 14th May, 1963, in which we endorsed the American President's view of what the likely action would be in the event of trouble.

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Egypt (Tripartite Agreement) (20 Jul 1964)

Mr R.A. Butler: Since the declaration of 1950 there have been several statements made, the most important of which was made by the former Prime Minister on 14th May of last year. That has since been reaffirmed by me in various statements; namely, that we regard the United Nations as being primarily responsible for the maintenance of peace in the area and that if any threat to peace were to arise we would...

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Egypt (Tripartite Agreement) (20 Jul 1964)

Mr R.A. Butler: We regard the United Nations primarily as the best conciliation machinery. As to the Declaration of 1950, as I say, various important declarations—the most important of which I have repeated to the House—have been made since that date. Those will govern the actions of Her Majesty's Government.

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Egypt (Tripartite Agreement) (20 Jul 1964)

Foreign Affairs (17 Jun 1964)

Mr R.A. Butler: First of all, I would like to pay my tribute to the two maiden speakers who took part in the debate and if I do not say more about them it is because I have very little time in which to reply. I assure my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Winchester (Rear-Admiral Morgan Giles) that we greatly appreciated his references to the British Armed Forces in peacetime, which, as he said, form an...

Foreign Affairs (17 Jun 1964)

Mr R.A. Butler: The situation, therefore, is that if this matter is ever raised by Europe, we shall come to the House and make our statement to the House in the way that we ought to do. We shall do that if the matter is raised again and request the agreement of the House on all aspects of the matter before we take any further action. I would only say that we remain—and I should like to make this clear at...

Foreign Affairs (17 Jun 1964)

Mr R.A. Butler: I made inquiries before coming to the House this evening. We are not exporting tanks and so I presume that we are not exporting parts. If I may, I should like notice of that question so that I can give an accurate reply. The right hon. Gentleman referred to arms for Spain. Of course, what strikes us on this occasion, as on many occasions in the past, and in the days when I used to be...

Foreign Affairs (17 Jun 1964)

Mr R.A. Butler: We follow the same rule. In Eastern Europe we are banned by the arrangement against strategic delivery. In the case of Spain we follow the same rule as we do for countries not within the bloc. That is the right policy to adopt and it is taken on the understanding that these arms are not likely, or intended, to be used against other countries or for aggression. I say firmly to the right hon....

Mr R.A. Butler: As regards Gibraltar, I will answer that immediately. There has been no raising of the Gibraltar question in relation to this deal. We still adhere to our attitude to Gibraltar in relation to Spain—

Foreign Affairs (17 Jun 1964)

Mr R.A. Butler: —but the matter has not been raised in the course of these negotiations. Those are the facts. The right hon. Gentleman asked what are the facts. As I am responsible for any exchanges in foreign policy I can tell him what the truth is, and that is the truth. The House will realise from my opening remarks that we are deeply conscious of the changing world scene which flows from the great...

Foreign Affairs (16 Jun 1964)

Mr R.A. Butler: I hope that in this debate we shall be realistic and take note of some of the fundamental changes which are taking place in the world. Our diplomacy must deal with the problems of the future and not of the past. In the Communist world, we are witnessing de-Stalinisation and heightened friction. Meanwhile, we in the West have been through a rapid sequence of decolonisation coinciding with a...

Foreign Affairs (16 Jun 1964)

Mr R.A. Butler: The right hon. Gentleman also took great pride in exhibiting them when he brought them home. Despite the fact that these are not written on tablets of stone, most of them are generally well known to us since we have been making our own progress on them. I will give the House the following examples. First, we want to contain the further development of nuclear weapons, and that is the...

Foreign Affairs (16 Jun 1964)

Mr R.A. Butler: The right hon. Gentleman is to speak later, and I am sure that he can develop the point then.

Foreign Affairs (16 Jun 1964)

Mr R.A. Butler: As the Prime Minister will also be speaking, I should not like to get in the way of either him or the right hon. Gentleman. As I was saying, the only way to keep the peace is to be strong, and that is why we intend to maintain our own nuclear deterrent—and make no mistake about it. What made the partial test ban agreement possible was that we negotiated from strength, realising our own...
