HC Deb 03 March 1983 vol 38 c213W
Mr. Norman Atkinson

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs in which category he includes the United Kingdom's Polaris weapons; and if this classification differs from the group in which Polaris was placed during the Salt I and Salt II talks.

Mr. Hurd

Polaris missiles are classified as strategic, as they were during the Salt II and Salt II talks and as the Soviet Government acknowledged at that time.
