HC Deb 30 July 1982 vol 28 c741W
Mr. Shore

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what is the present total of SS20 missiles, targeted on Western Europe, installed by the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics; and what were the figures for 1981, 1980 and 1979.

Mr. Blaker

315 SS20 missiles, each with three warheads, have now been deployed by the Soviet Union. Of these, approximately 70 per cent. are capable of striking targets in Western Europe. The numbers of SS20s deployed and capable of striking targets in Western Europe at the end of 1981, 1980 and 1979 were 190, 120 and 80.
