To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what recent meetings Ministers or officials of his Department have had with representatives of non-governmental organisations from (a) the United Kingdom and (b) abroad regarding perceived risks of the international commerce in plutonium and other nuclear explosive materials.

This subject was raised at my meeting with NGOs to discuss non-proliferation on 26 November 1991. More recently, Dr. David Lowry of the European proliferation information centre (EPIC) had a meeting with an official from non-proliferation and defence department at which this issue was discussed.
