§ Mr. Flynn
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs when he intends to publish the report on the verification of a conventional forces treaty in Europe, commissioned jointly from the Verification Technology Information Centre and the United Kingdom Council for Arms Control, and delivered to his Department on 29 September; how many copies of the report will be printed; and to which organisations and bodies he intends to circulate the report.
§ Mr. Waldegrave
The report was commissioned by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office on a classified basis, 293W for use by British officials in formulating policy, both nationally and in consultation with our allies, on the verification of a conventional arms control agreement. The authors are aware that should they wish to produce an unclassified version of the report, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office would be prepared to publish it.
