HC Deb 16 November 1982 vol 32 cc152-3W
34. Mr. Gwilym Roberts

asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he will publish a White Paper setting out the nuclear weapons strategy of Her Majesty's Government; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Blaker

The "Annual Statement on the Defence Estimates" contains a full statement of defence policy, including nuclear matters. In particular, the 1981 White Paper included a self-contained essay on nuclear deterrence and the prevention of war. Considerable further information about nuclear strategy is available in Government leaflets and other publications.
