asked the Secretary of State for Defence what discussions have taken place within the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation about production of the neutron bomb by the United States Government.
As I explained in my answer to my hon. Friend the Member for Preston, South (Mr. Thorne)—[Vol. 958, c. 536]—the United States Defence Secretary confirmed at the ministerial meeting of NATO's nuclear planning group in October that President Carter was retaining the options he had decided upon in April. A copy of the communique issued after the meeting was placed in the Library of the House on 21st November.
asked the Secretary of State for Defence what discussions he has had with his United States counterpart about the possible production and use of the neutron bomb.
None, other than those to which I referred in my earlier answer to the hon. Member today.
