Lord Jenkins of Putney

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What is their reaction to the United States discovery of defective nuclear artillery shells in Europe which could have exploded accidentally in storage; whether they share the concern of the American Government; and what has been or will be done about it.

The Earl of Arran

We are fully satisfied with the safety of UK nuclear weapons and with US Government assurances on the safety of US nuclear weapons.
