HC Deb 02 December 1980 vol 995 c76W
21. Mr. Maxton

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what discussions he has had with his counterpart in the United States Administration on the predisposition of chemical weapons in Europe.

Mr. Pym

None. What we have discussed is the serious threat to the West posed by Soviet military strength, one element of which is the Soviet Union's massive chemical warfare capability.
