HC Deb 28 June 1988 vol 136 c226W
Mrs. Fyfe

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what contribution his Department is making to the achievement of multilateral naval nuclear disarmament.

Mr. Ian Stewart

My Department contributes to the formation of United Kingdom policies on the whole range of arms control issues. Among NATO's current priorities in arms control is a 50 per cent. reduction in United States and Soviet strategic nuclear arsenals in the negotiations on which submarine-launched ballistic missiles and submarine-launched cruise missiles are involved.
