HL Deb 11 October 1993 vol 549 c14WA
Lord Jenkins of Putney

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether a nuclear weapon has been constructed in the United States using civil-grade plutonium, and has been detonated; and, if so, whether they will now ban the separation and export of all grades of plutonium.

Lord Strathclyde

I refer the noble Lord to the reply given to him by my noble friend Baroness Denton of Wakefield on 5th July 1993 (col.WA 44).
