HC Deb 26 March 1985 vol 76 c183W
40. Mr. Chapman

asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he will make a statement about the current types and deployment of SS missiles targeted by the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics on Western Europe.

Mr. Stanley

The situation as at the early part of last year was set out in figure 11 "The Balance of Nuclear Forces" on page 43 of Vol. I of the Statement on the Defence Estimates 1984. All those SS missiles shown as longer range INF, shorter range INF and short range forces in Europe would be directed towards Western Europe. In addition, some of the strategic system SS missiles could also be targeted on Western Europe. This data will be revised in the Statement on the Defence Estimates 1985.
