Cluster Munitions

Volume 703: debated on Thursday 17 July 2008

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they will ask the Government of the United States to remove the maximum possible amount of American cluster munitions stored in the United Kingdom during the first two years of the agreed eight-year period. [HL4876]

Bilateral discussions with the United States on the implications of the Oslo Convention on US cluster munitions stockpiled on UK territory are continuing. We expect to reach a mutually satisfactory conclusion soon.
