§ 49. Mr. Hugh Jenkins
asked the Secretary of State for Defence to what extent at the Ministerial meeting of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation's Nuclear Planning Group, or subsequently, there has been a reconsideration of the policy of posing a nuclear threat to a conventional attack.
§ Mr. John Morris
N.A.T.O.'s deterrent strategy is based on presenting a range of appropriate responses, both nuclear and conventional, to various levels of possible aggression. There has been no recent reconsideration of this policy.
