HC Deb 11 July 1985 vol 82 c536W
Mr. Cohen

asked the Secretary of State for Defence if in the light of the recent United States House of Representatives decision on 20 June to authorise funds for offensive chemical weapons on condition that Britain agrees to store them, it remains his policy to oppose the storage of chemical weapons in Britain; and if he will make the position of Her Majesty's Government on this issue known to both the members of the United States Congress and to the United States administration.

Mr. Stanley

The position on the storage of United States chemical weapons in Britain is that no such request has been made to us, as I said to my hon. Friend the Member for Bexleyheath on 26 March (Vol. 76, columns180–1).
