HC Deb 15 May 1985 vol 79 c151W
Mr. Michie

asked the Secretary of State for Defence whether any work has been done on preliminary studies for new British non-strategic nuclear weapons.

Mr. Butler

It is normal practice to keep under review the need to replace all United Kingdom in-service weapons systems. There are, however, no plans to replace the United Kingdom's current generation of tactical nuclear weapons and there is no early requirement to do so.
