HC Deb 06 November 1989 vol 159 c482W
Mr. Macdonald

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what is his Department's assessment as to the percentage reduction in the total number of strategic nuclear weapons that would occur as a result of the successful outcome of the current START negotiations.

Mr. Archie Hamilton

It is not possible to forecast the precise percentage reductions in the number of United States and Soviet strategic offensive weapons systems which may result from a START agreement.
