HC Deb 03 February 1988 vol 126 c640W
79. Mr. Dunnachie

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what assessment he has made of the implications for the middle east peace process of allegations by the Government of Israel that Syria is developing nerve gas production facilities; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Mellor

The development of chemical weapons by any state in the region cannot but further complicate an already difficult and dangerous situation. We are working for a global ban on chemical weapons as the only practical way to relieve mankind of this terrible threat overshadowing his future.
