§ Lord Jenkins of Putney
asked Her Majesty's Government:
How they reconcile allied attacks on Iraqi nuclear facilities with the collective statement after the last Non-Proliferation Treaty Review prohibiting such attacks; and whether any radiation has been released as a result of allied action.
§ The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Ministry of Defence (The Earl of Arran):
This issue was covered in documents considered by the conference; but no such collective statement was made. We have no evidence of any release of radioactivity from Iraq's nuclear installations.
