§ 21. Mr. Brooks
asked the Secretary of State for Defence whether, in order to indicate the credibility of Great Britain's nuclear deterrent, he will now publish details of the nuclear weapon stock at the disposal of Her Majesty's Government.188W
§ Mr. Healey
No. It is not the practice to give details of this kind. In any case, British strategic nuclear weapons represent our contribution to the Collective Western Strategic nuclear deterrent, and it is the credibility of that deterrent with which we are concerned.
