§ Lord Jenkins of Putney
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether they will strive to make the whole of Europe free from nuclear weapons.
§ Baroness Chalker of Wallasey
Whilst complete nuclear disarmament remains our long-term objective, we believe that the United Kingdom's nuclear weapons, in the context of a European contribution to the North Atlantic Alliance, continue to have a positive role within an existing stable system of war-prevention.
