HL Deb 26 March 1990 vol 517 c722WA
Lord Jenkins of Putney

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether a comprehensive test bank treaty would greatly strengthen the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.

Lord Reay

The non-proliferation treaty looks forward to both nuclear disarmament and general and complete disarmament under strict and effective international control: constraints on nuclear testing are therefore only part of the wider arms control process, which has made remarkable progress over recent years.
