§ Mr. Llew Smith
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, pursuant to his answer of 26 May,Official Report, column 231, when he obtained a copy of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament blueprint report; and what conclusions he has reached following the examination of its proposals.
§ Mr. Hanley
My Department received a copy of the report in early June. While complete and general nuclear disarmament is a desirable ultimate goal we do not believe that the proposals in the CND report represent a realistic approach.
