HL Deb 23 April 1996 vol 571 c91WA
Lord Kennet

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether any European members of NATO took part in Exercise Co-operative Nugget in August 1995 which involved the armed forces of the US and 16 east, central and south European countries and member countries of the Commonwealth of Independent States; whether this was a NATO or a Partnership for Peace exercise; and who paid for the exercise.

Earl Howe

The UK was the only European NATO member to participate fully in Exercise Co-operative Nugget, a Partnership for Peace exercise, together with the US and Canada. Other European NATO members sent observers. The participation of PfP Partners was funded by the US. NATO Allies met their own costs.
