HC Deb 19 October 1995 vol 264 cc349-50W
Dr. David Clark

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what plans his Department has to purchase anti-personnel land mines. [37893]

Mr. Arbuthnot

We are currently considering our future requirements for anti-personnel land mines, but have reached no decisions. Any new mines introduced into service would have a self-destruct capability and would fully meet the requirements of the international laws of armed conflict.
