§ 48. Dr. Stross
asked the Paymaster-General, as representing the Lord President of the Council, what machinery exists whereby there can be a regular interchange of information between British and United States scientists in the development of the peaceful uses of atomic energy, so as to avoid duplications of effort and waste of scientific manpower.
§ Mr. Maudling
The agreement between the United Kingdom and United States Governments for co-operation on the civil uses of atomic energy provides for the exchange of information over a wide field. This is effected through the regular transmission of reports between the United States Atomic Energy Commission and the United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority, and by frequent exchanges of visits by experts of the two countries. In addition, the Atomic Energy Authority maintain a Scientific Liaison Office in Washington and the Atomic Energy Commission has recently established a similar office in London. Opportunities for the exchange of information also result from the participation of the United Kingdom and the United States in international conferences and in the work of international bodies concerned with atomic energy.
