HC Deb 03 March 1989 vol 148 c359W
Mr. Wareing

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many obsolete nuclear warheads have been scrapped by Her Majesty's Government as a consequence of the NATO Montebello agreement.

Mr. Archie Hamilton

None. The nuclear warheads removed from the NATO European stockpile since the Montebello NPG meeting have all been owned by, and disposed of by, the Unites States Government.

Mr. Harry Barnes

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what further information he has on United States proposals to build new, and upgrade existing, nuclear vaults at their bases in the United Kingdom.

Mr. Archie Hamilton

I have nothing to add to the answer that I gave the hon. Member for Manchester, Blackley (Mr. Eastham) on 7 February at column655.
