HC Deb 11 January 1990 vol 164 c727W
Dr. Thomas

To ask the Prime Minister if she has given consideration to the implications for(a) national and (b) global security that would arise from the complete separation of military and civilian nuclear facilities in nuclear weapon states.

The Prime Minister
