HC Deb 25 April 1995 vol 258 c425W
Mr. Llew Smith

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what specific recent representations have been made to Iran regarding its nuclear programme. [20362]

Mr. David Davies

We have made no specific representations to Iran regarding its nuclear programme, but we have made public our concerns at reports that Iran is seeking to develop nuclear weapons. My right hon. Friend the Foreign Secretary made it clear in his evidence to the Foreign Affairs Committee on 18 January that the US assessment indicating that Iran could possess a nuclear explosive device within seven to 15 years gave serious cause for concern.
