Mr Cohen

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, pursuant to his answer of 26 January,Official Report, column 156, to which particular weapons systems the Montebello requirement (a) applies and(b) does not apply.

Mr. Ian Stewart

The report considered at Montebello in 1983, when NATO Defence Ministers agreed both to a reduction in the Alliance's land-based nuclear stockpile in Europe and on the need for possible improvements to ensure the effectiveness, responsiveness and survivability of remaining forces, examined the question of the future size and composition of NATO's theatre nuclear stockpile as a whole.
