Mr. Chaytor

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he discussed plutonium policy during his recent visit to Moscow; and if he will make a statement. [112358]

Mr. Vaz

FCO Ministers and officials hold regular discussions with the Russians on proliferation issues. The latest round of talks is taking place at official level on 3 March in Moscow.

Her Majesty's Government announced in December that it would be undertaking a Cross-cutting Review on Nuclear Safety in the Former Soviet Union. Plutonium disposition is one of the issues under discussion within the review.
