HC Deb 05 December 1980 vol 995 c185W
Mr. Alton

asked the Prime Minister if she will raise with the leaders of France and China their respective countries' failure to sign the 1963 test ban treaty.

The Prime Minister

The Governments of France and China are well aware of our view that it would be desirable for all States to adhere to the 1963 treaty banning nuclear weapon tests in the atmosphere, in outer space and under water, of which we are a depository Government.
