HC Deb 29 November 1995 vol 267 c788W
25. Mrs. Mahon

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement about Her Majesty's Government's policy on nuclear testing. [880]

Mr. David Davis

We have no plans to conduct any further nuclear weapon tests. We are actively negotiating for a comprehensive test ban treaty. But it would be wrong for us to criticise the French decision which they believe is necessary to ensure the safety and reliability of their deterrent, and which was taken on the basis of scientific advice.

Forward to
