§ Mrs. Shirley Williams
asked the Secretary of State for Defence what decision he has reached on spending public money for an advertising campaign against unilateral nuclear disarmament in general, and the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament in particular.
§ Mr. Heseltine
I am considering all the arguments, including the precedent in 1969 of the expenditure of the equivalent in today's terms of over £1 million by the then Labour Government, of which the right hon. Lady was a member. I have not yet reached any final decisions.
