HC Deb 14 June 1988 vol 135 c118W
Dr. Thomas

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, pursuant to his reply to the hon. Member for Manchester, Withington (Mr. Bradley),Official Report, 24 May, column 181, what has been done with the nuclear materials contained in the more than 2,000 warheads removed unilaterally, to which he makes reference.

Mr. Ian Stewart

All the 2,400 warheads removed from NATO's land-based nuclear stockpile in Europe since 1979 were wholly the property of the United States Government; the disposal of the nuclear materials contained in them is therefore a matter for the United States Government.
