§ Mr. Jim Cunningham
To ask the President of the Board of Trade what steps she has taken to ensure that no plutonium from the United Kingdom has been used in the production of nuclear weapons in developing countries. 
§ Mr. Battle
I refer my hon. Friend to the detailed answer given to the hon. Member for Perth (Ms Cunningham) on 1 June 1998,Official Report, columns 119–20.
The stringent controls described in that answer would apply to any applications to export plutonium to a developing country.
