HC Deb 21 October 1982 vol 29 c172W
Q7. Mr. loan Evans

asked the Prime Minister if she will consider seeking to convene a conference of world leaders to prepare plans for world disarmament.

The Prime Minister:

No. We have just had the United Nations special session on disarmament, which I attended. There are no grounds for convening a meeting of world leaders. The right way to pursue arms control is by serious negotiations. Negotiations are now taking place on intermediate nuclear forces, strategic arms reduction talks and mutual and balanced force reductions.
