The House will remember that the Cabinet Mission, in their memorandum of 12th May, 1946, informed the States that His Majesty's Government could not, and will not in any circumstances, transfer paramountcy to an Indian Government.

INDIA (CABINET MISSION) (Hansard, 18 July 1946)
Hansard
It is proposed to abrogate those treaties and to abolish the principle of paramountcy which, at present, alone defines the relationship of these States—in some cases almost nations, in some cases models of good government in India —to whatever new Central Government is set up in India. If all the minorities are added together, they constitute much more than half the inhabitants of India. I ...

Hansard
Paramountcy can neither be retained by the British Crown nor transferred to the new government. This fact has been fully recognised by those whom we interviewed from the States. They have at the same time assured us that the States are ready and willing to co-operate in the new development of India. The precise form which their co-operation will take must be a matter for negotiation during the ...

First of all, the Non-Proliferation Treaty separates states into nuclear weapon states and non-nuclear weapon states. I do not regard that as hypocritical. It was part of a real effort made in the late 1960s to stop the proliferation of nuclear weapons. President Kennedy made a speech in 1960/1 saying that if we go on as we are there will be 20 or 30 countries with nuclear weapon systems by ...

§Mr. R. A. Butler. Following upon the procedure adopted on the first Clause, there are several points to raise on this Clause. It deals with the subject of the territories of the new Dominions, but I suggest that we should not go into detail on the division of Bengal and the Punjab, until we come to Clauses 3 and 4, which deal with their division and on which we shall have a good deal to say.
