Elastic neutron scattering experiments on the pressure-induced ferromagnetic superconductor UGe2 have been carried out under pressures P up to 1.6 GPa at temperatures T down to 60 mK, to study the correlation between superconductivity and ferromagnetism. No change was observed in ferromagnetic Bragg peak intensities nor a line width at Q=(0,0,1) through the superconducting transition temperature TSC under P∼1.10 and 1.25 GPa, suggesting that the ferromagnetism is not affected by the onset of superconductivity under these two pressures.
