Mr. O'Neill

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what discussions he has had with his NATO counterparts regarding a possible increase in the export of military equipment resulting from the CFE treaty.

I have been asked to reply.

During the negotiations, NATO secured agreement to provisions in the CFE treaty that require any equipment of types limited by the treaty in excess of the treaty limits to be destroyed or converted to non-military use according to internationally agreed procedures.
