§ Mr. D. E. Thomas
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, pursuant to the reply to the hon. Member for Yeovil (Mr. Ashdown), 6 December 1985, Official Report, column 385, what effects he assesses the conclusion of a comprehensive nuclear test ban treaty in 1986 would have upon the Trident nuclear warhead testing programme; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Renton
These would depend on the terms and conditions of an agreement, which remains a hypothetical question.
