HL Deb 29 July 2002 vol 638 c158WA
Lord Laird

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they consider that an organisation which is developing terrorist weapons can be considered to be creating a threat against people and a serious risk to the health or safety of the public. [HL5125]

Lord Williams of Mostyn

The Prime Minister has made it abundantly clear there can be no halfway house on the road to peace. All paramilitary activity, including training and targeting, must stop, along with the decommissioning of all terrorist weapons.
