HC Deb 12 March 1958 vol 584 cc400-1
9. Mr. Emrys Hughes

asked the Secretary of State for War to what extent the British garrison in Berlin is armed with nuclear tactical weapons.

Mr. Soames

The British garrison in Berlin has no nuclear tactical weapons.

Mr. Hughes

Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that many of us will be pleased to hear that, and so will the people of Berlin, because it will help to dispel the prospect of any side using nuclear tactical weapons in Berlin which would blow up a city which has already suffered enough?

Mr. Soames

I did not expect the hon. Gentleman to be displeased.
