  • Description

    MR ROBERT McNAMARA, THE UNITED STATES DEFENCE SECRETARY, ARRIVED AT LONDON AIRPORT THIS MORNING (TUESDAY) FOR TALKS WITH BRITISH MINISTERS AND DEFENCE OFFICIALS.

    HE WAS MET AT THE AIRPORT BY MR PETER THORNEYCROFT, THE BRITISH DEFENCE MINISTER. THEY LEFT IMMEDIATELY BY A HELICOPTER OF THE QUEEN'S FLIGHT WITHOUT MAKING STATEMENTS TO REPORTER S AND CORRESPONDENTS.

    IT HAS BEEN EMPHASIZED IN LONDON THAT THE ANGLO-AMERICAN TALKS ARE A NORMAL PRELUDE TO A MEETING OF THE NORTH ATLANTIC TREATY ORGANISATION (NATO). HOWEVER, UNOFFICIALLY, GREAT IMPORTANCE HAS BEEN ATTACHED TO THE MEETING BECAUSE OF THE BEARING IT WILL HAVE ON THE BRITISH DEFENCE PROGRAMME.

    THE FUTURE OF THE "SKYBOLT" BALLISTIC MISSILE - WHICH BRITAIN NEEDS FOR ITS V-BOMBER FORCE - MAY COME UNDER DISCUSSION BUT THE FINAL DECISION WILL BE MADE ONLY AT THE FORTHCOMING MEETING BETWEEN PRESIDENT KENNEDY AND MR MACMILLAN, THE BRITISH PRIME MINISTER, IN THE BAHAMAS ON DECEMBER 19 AND 20.
