HL Deb 17 December 1990 vol 524 c43WA
Lord Kennet

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What proportion of British troops and equipment sent to the Gulf is covered by the recently signed CFE agreement, and what are the implications for that agreement of their removal from its area of operation.

The Earl of Arran

All British equipment deployed to the Gulf from within the area of application of the CFE Treaty will continue to be treated for the purposes of that treaty as if it remained within the area of application.
