HC Deb 15 October 2003 vol 411 c234W
Mr. Dobson

To ask the Prime Minister what assessment the Government have made of whether Syria(a) possesses and (b) is developing weapons of mass destruction. [131973]

The Prime Minister

The Government are concerned by persistent reports that Syria is pursuing a programme for the development of weapons of mass destruction and believes that the best way to pursue those concerns is in a frank and critical dialogue with the Syrian Government.

We regularly urge all states to sign and ratify all the treaties and conventions covering the development of such weapons.
