§ Mr. Llew Smith
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on the outcome of the second preparatory committee meeting for the review and renewal conference of the nuclear non-proliferation treaty held in New York from 17 January; and if he will place in the Library copies of those documents circulated at the preparatory committee meeting making reference to the United Kingdom policy on the non-proliferation treaty.
§ Mr. Douglas Hogg
The second meeting of the preparatory committee for the 1995 non-proliferation treaty extension and review conference was largely concerned with organisational issues and the committee made good progress towards its task of preparing for the conference. The leader of the United Kingdom delegation also delivered a short statement in which he reaffirmed our commitment to our treaty obligations and our aim of securing the treaty's unconditional and indefinite extension in 1995. A copy of this statement has been deposited in the Library of the House.
