HC Deb 01 November 1983 vol 47 c734
20. Mr. Winnick

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what further representations he has received over the placing of cruise missiles in the United Kingdom.

Mr. Stanley

I refer the hon. Gentleman to the answer I gave earlier today to the hon. Member for Cynon Valley (Mr. Evans).

Mr. Winnick

Is the Minister aware that the concern about cruise missiles, far from diminishing, has become even greater during the past few weeks, especially because of the events in Grenada? Is he further aware that that agitation and concern are not confined to only a few people, and is bound to grow? Should not the Government take note of the sincere feelings of so many people who are opposed to cruise missiles being stationed in Britain?

Mr. Stanley

The House knows that that matter was debated extensively yesterday, including the dual-key issue. The House reached a decisive conclusion.
