HC Deb 10 July 1979 vol 970 cc129-30W
Mr. Newens

asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he will make a statement on the progress achieved to date on the project on which Mr. Charles A. Senseney, an employee at the United States special operations division, Fort Detrick, and an expert in toxic dart launchers, collaborated during his secondment to the United Kingdom, mentioned in hearings before the United States Senate Select Committee to study governmental operations with respect to intelligence activities.

Mr. Hayhoe

The Ministry of Defence is not involved in any project concerned with toxic darts. The secondment to which the hon. Member refers has been in connection with defence against biological warfare.
