§ Lord Northfield
asked Her Majesty's Government:
What action they propose to take on the study conducted by the Standing Armaments Committee of Western European Union on how to achieve a truly European armaments policy.
§ Lord Carrington
The Standing Armaments Committee of Western European Union was instructed to make a descriptive analysis of the situation in the armaments industry in member countries; its work is complementary to work in the Independent European Programme Group which is still in progress. The Standing Armaments Committee's report has been presented to the Council of the Western European Union and is under study by member Governments.
