§ Q13. Mr. Wigley
asked the Prime Minister if she is satisfied with the progress made during the past six months towards nuclear disarmament.
§ The Prime Minister
No. Despite the flexibility shown by the West in proposals put forward, and our clear desire to negotiate seriously, the Soviet Government have been stalling. We continue to believe, however, that the Russians will recognise that agreements providing for balance at lower levels of nuclear weapons are in their longer term interests.
