HC Deb 18 June 1986 vol 99 c544W
Mr. Peter Bruinvels

asked the Prime Minister if, pursuant to her answer to the hon. Member for Leicester, East of 4 June, she will take steps to ensure the compilation and maintenace of a central list of local authorities which have declared a nuclear-free zone in their area; and if she will make a statement.

The Prime Minister

Since we do not recognise the validity of so-called nuclear-free zones, the Government do not consider that it would be appropriate to require local authorities to provide information of this kind, nor that the expense involved would be justified.
