§ 7. Mr. Philip Noel-Baker
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will instruct his Disarmament Research Department to compile a list of all accidents and mishaps involving nuclear weapons during the last 10 years, with information concerning the nature of the occurrence and the functioning of safety devices; and whether he will lay this study as a White Paper before the House.
§ Mr. Padley
No. There have been no accidents or mishaps involving British nuclear weapons. We are not in a position to compile a list of accidents involving nuclear weapons belonging to other countries.
