HC Deb 11 April 1989 vol 150 c511W
43. Mr. Menzies Campbell

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what is Her Majesty's Government's policy on a replacement for the free fall nuclear bomb.

Mr. Archie Hamilton

For credible deterrence, nuclear weapons must be kept effective and up to date. The United Kingdom's free-fall bombs are no exception, and we are continuing to study a number of options for their replacement around the turn of the century.
