§ Lord Brockway
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether they support the establishment of a nuclear weapon-free zone in the Middle East in compliance with the United Nations General Assembly resolution 35/147, and whether they will initiate action in the Security Council to advance 398WA its establishment as recommended by the Working Group of the Committee on Disarmament.
§ Lord Belstead
We have consistently supported the establishment of a Middle East nuclear weapon-free zone. But in our view it is for the states of the region to take the initiative, whether in the Security Council, or elsewhere.
