§ Lord Kennet
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether the Secretary of State for Defence has discussed "the potential for future united action against Iran's nuclear plant" with the Israeli government during his recent visit to Israel (The Times, 19th April 1996); and, if so, whether they will confirm that he did not commit Britain to any such action, or to consideration of any such action except in the context of the United Nations.
The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Ministry of Defence (Earl Howe)
No such discussion took place.
