§ Mr. Woof
asked the Minister of State for Defence what results have emerged from the North Atlantic Treaty Organisa 364W tion Sub-Committee which was studying the possibility of establishing an antiballistic missile system for Western Europe.
§ Lord Balniel
In April, 1968, the Nuclear Planning Group of N.A.T.O. announced that, in their opinion, circumstances did not justify the deployment of an anti-ballistic missile system in Europe, but that developments in this field should be kept under constant review. That is still the position.
