European Anti-missile Site

Volume 447: debated on Thursday 15 June 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what plans NATO has to install an anti-missile site in Europe; what discussions he has had on this matter with (a) the USA, (b) Poland and (c) the Czech Republic; and if he will make a statement. (76610)

NATO is currently examining the implications of a feasibility study into ballistic missile defence for alliance territories and population centres and as yet no plans have been developed or approved. I have not discussed the implications of the study with my counterparts in the USA, Poland or the Czech Republic.
