§ Lord Jenkins of Putney
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether by extending the range, power and number of other NATO nuclear weapons it is their object to negative the INF agreement and if not why are they proposing these measures.
§ Lord Trefgarne
Once in force the INF agreement will eliminate land-based missiles of intermediate range. It is not concerned with any other nuclear weapons. The INF treaty will be scrupulously implemented by the US. NATO's determination to ensure that its nuclear forces remain credible and effective will not undercut it in any way.
