§ Lord Jenkins of Putney
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether they will give the date of the United States' confirmation of the Prime Minister's belief that she possesses a veto over the firing of American cruise missiles located in this country [H.L. debates, 7th June 1984, col. 771]; what form the confirmation took; from whom did it come and to whom was it addressed.
§ The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for the Armed Forces (Lord Trefgarne)
As I explained in my answer to the noble Lord on 7th June, the details of the exchanges between the two governments on this subject are confidential.
