HC Deb 19 March 1985 vol 75 c435W
Mr. Strang

asked the Secretary of State for Defence whether he intends to support the creation of a new North Atlantic Treaty Organisation command with responsibility for the defence of northern Europe.

Mr. Stanley

NATO's existing command structure takes full account of the importance of northern Europe. Any changes to NATO's command structure would be a matter for collective Alliance consideration; none is in prospect.
