Tabled 23 July 2002

There have been 2 amendments to this EDM.
That this House welcomes the clear statement by the Defence Secretary in the House on 15th July, that British Government policy has not changed since John Major, during the Gulf War, explicitly rules out the use of British nuclear weapons against Iraq, even in reply to a chemical or biological attack on our forces, on the grounds that a proportionate response could be made using conventional weapons and that Britain would never breach the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.
