asked Her Majesty's Government:Whether any member of the British Embassy staff attended the seminar in Haifa University in April 1995 on the subject of Israel's nuclear weapons; whether they continue to have no knowledge of Israeli non-conventional weapons, particularly its nuclear weapons capabilities; and whether they brought up the subject during the discussions leading to this new agreement "to formalise the strategic dialogue" and if not, why not.
