asked Her Majesty's Government:Whether they have discussed United States Presidential Decision Directives 62 and 63, on the subject of Infrastructure Vulnerability, with the United States authorities; and what are the implications of these directives for the Strategic Defence Review. [HL2403]
I refer my noble friend to the reply I gave him on Monday 27 July (WA 174). We have noted Presidential Decision Directives 62 and 63. Although directives themselves have no direct implications for the Strategic Defence Review, the wider issue of Information Vulnerability was considered carefully, as explained in the SDR Supporting Essay on the Impact of Technology.
