Mr. Macdonald

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what is the Government's policy towards the complete removal of land-based short-range nuclear weapons at the forthcoming negotiations on these weapons; and when these negotiations will begin.

NATO has agreed on the need to maintain nuclear forces based in Europe and kept up to date where necessary. Work is continuing within the alliance with a view to significant reductions in short-range nuclear forces in Europe.
