HC Deb 05 December 1985 vol 88 c349W
Mr. Soames

asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he has made any proposals within the Northern Atlantic Treaty Organisation for the provision of a barrier defence; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Stanley

My right hon. Friend has made no proposals to NATO for a physical barrier defence. I also refer my hon. Friend to the reply that I gave to the hon. Member for Walthamstow (Mr. Deakins) on 18 March, at column 407.
