§ 16. Mr. Woodall
asked the Secretary of State for Defence what is the financial value of any obsolete nuclear weapons still held by Her Majesty's Government.
§ Mr. Blaker
Obsolete nuclear weapons are not held by Her Majesty's Government but are disposed of at the end of their useful lives. They are carefully dismantled and all reuseable materials, including all special nuclear materials, are recovered and reprocessed. Non-reuseable materials are disposed of in accordance with strict safety regulations.
