HL Deb 11 March 1985 vol 461 c109WA
Lord Brockway

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they have noted the decision of the New Zealand Government to prohibit the presence of nuclear weapons on their territory and the calling at their ports of any warship carrying nuclear weapons: and whether they will initiate a similar policy for the United Kingdom and urge other governments to do so for their territories by moving a recommendation at the Security Council of the United Nations.

Lord Trefgarne

We are well aware of the New Zealand Government's views on these issues but we have no intention of initiating similar policies or of urging other countries to do so in the manner proposed by the noble Lord.
