HC Deb 07 May 1986 vol 97 cc183-4W
50. Mr. Marland

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what plans he has to publicise those elements in recent Soviet disarmament proposals which are unacceptable to Her Majesty's Government.

Mr. Renton

In his speech to the Foreign Press Association on 17 March my right hon. and learned Friend gave a detailed assessment of current Soviet proposals relating to both the Geneva Nuclear and Space Talks and to the other arms control negotiations currently in progress. A copy of the speech is available in the Library. We are still studying the latest proposals on conventional arms control, made in East Berlin on 18 April by Mr. Gorbachev.
