§ Mr. Menzies Campbell
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence when his Department expects to remove all remaining WE-177s from operational service. 
§ Dr. John Reid
It was announced in April 1995 that all WE-177 bombs would be withdrawn from operational service by the end of 1998. In line with the Government's commitment to be as open as possible, I am now able to confirm that all these bombs will be withdrawn by 31 March of that year.
