HC Deb 05 February 1998 vol 305 c765W
Mr. Robert McCartney

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what weapons and explosives have been dealt with to date, by the Decommissioning Body. [22900]

Mr. Ingram

No terrorist weapons or explosives have yet been dealt with by the Independent International Commission on Decommissioning. The Commission quickly produced their proposals for schemes and continue to work on the detailed arrangements to facilitate actual decommissioning. It is now for those in possession of illegal arms to take this important confidence building step.
