HC Deb 23 April 1990 vol 171 c42W
Mr. Flynn

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what is his latest assessment of the capability of the Rabta chemical plant in Libya to produce chemical warfare agents.

Mr. Waldegrave

We have no doubt that the Rabta plant is intended to produce chemical weapons on a large scale. It remains unclear what has been the effect of the reported fire on 14 March.
