HL Deb 22 March 1999 vol 598 c122WA
Lord Kennet

asked Her Majesty's Government:

How they propose to follow up the statement of the Secretary General of NATO at the NATO at 50 Conference that the new Strategic Concept will be debated in the national bodies. [HL1511]

Baroness Symons of Vernham Dean

NATO's new Strategic Concept was debated in this House as recently as 3 March, at the noble Lord's request. There will be opportunities to do so again, including during the defence debate in another place on 25 March and in the: context of the Defence Select Committee's inquiry into the future of NATO.
