Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Disarmament Department and Arms Control and Disarmament Department: Registered Files (DS Series)
This series contains records of the Disarmament Department and its successor dealing with all questions of international significance concerning the control and elimination of nuclear and conventional weapons.
The Disarmament Department was established in October 1968 on the formation of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office to take over all policy work on nuclear and conventional arms control and disarmament, previously handled by the Atomic Energy and Disarmament Department of the Foreign Office. In 1972 the Department was renamed the Arms Control and Disarmament Department, and it oversaw an Arms Control and Disarmament Research Unit established to undertake research into the long-term implications of disarmament.
