§ Mr. Morley
asked the Secretary of State for Defence what studies have been undertaken in his Department concerning the peaceful uses to which plutonium and enriched unranium from nuclear warheads can be put in the event of successful multilateral nuclear disarmament negotiations; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Sainsbury
No substantive studies have been undertaken. Current disarmament proposals do not involve United Kingdom-owned nuclear weapons.
