HC Deb 20 March 1998 vol 308 c769W
Mr. Menzies Campbell

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs how many anti-personnel mines under the control of the Government of the United States are held on United Kingdom territory. [35071]

Mr. Tony Lloyd

There are no US anti-personnel land mines on the UK mainland. I understand that some US mines are stored on US warships which are presently in the territorial waters of the British Indian Ocean Territory. The US Government generally do not make public the details of the specific locations, types and quantities of their military stocks.
