§ 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.
