HL Deb 04 December 1995 vol 567 c63WA
Lord Kennet

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether the complete test ban which is now being negotiated is expected to ban the micro explosions which are by some considered as a possible technique for securing nuclear fusion as a source of electricity.

Lord Chesham:

A comprehensive test ban treaty will not affect the right of states parties to develop means to use nuclear energy for peaceful purposes, such as electricity production.
