HL Deb 04 December 1995 vol 567 c63WA
Lord Kennet

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether the Committee system which operated during the recent Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) Review Conference failed to allow for the consideration of the treaty on general and comprehensive disarmament under strict and effective international control (as required to be negotiated under Article 6 of the NPT); and, if so, what steps they intend to take to ensure that the matter of such a treaty is properly considered in the forthcoming preparatory meetings and at the next Review Conference.

Lord Chesham:

No. Main Committee 1 did in fact review progress towards a treaty on general and complete disarmament.
