To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what action he intends to take to secure the elimination of nuclear weapons in Israel.
§ Mr. Douglas Hogg
As a depositary state of the nuclear non-proliferation treaty (NPT) it is our policy to take every suitable opportunity both to raise the importance of462W nuclear non-proliferation with all non-parties to the non-proliferation treaty and to lobby them to accede as soon as possible. This would engage them in an undertaking not to manufacture or acquire nuclear weapons.
