Nuclear Disarmament

Volume 472: debated on Thursday 21 February 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs pursuant to the answer of 22 January 2008, Official Report, column 1354W, on nuclear disarmament, what the specific parameters are of the independent International Institute of Strategic Studies in-depth study to help determine the requirements for the eventual elimination of all nuclear weapons. (187926)

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office funded a workshop in November 2007 on the technical challenges of complete nuclear disarmament. The study itself, however, is independent and the scope and parameters are therefore for the International Institute of Strategic Studies (IISS) to decide. The hon. Member may wish to refer to the IISS for any further information.
