HC Deb 22 April 1983 vol 41 c187W
Mr. Frank Allaun

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what progress he has made with the announced new film arguing the case for basing United States cruise missiles in the United Kingdom; and when and where he intends to have it shown.

Mr. Blaker

As I explained in my answer to the hon. Member on 9 February, consideration was given earlier this year to producing a short public information film to explain why, in the absence of results in the Geneva intermediate nuclear force negotiations, it will be necessary to base cruise missiles in Great Britain. —[Vol. 36, c.402.] We have now decided not to proceed with the making of such a film.
