Mr. Flynn

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence if he has had any discussions or plans any future discussions with the defence Minister of any country not party to the nuclear non-proliferation treaty on the joint developments with the United Kingdom of stand-off air-launched nuclear weapons systems.

As I have made clear on several occasions, discussions are taking place with both the United States and French Governments on procurement options for the possible replacement of WE 177 free-fall bomb.
