§ Lord Kennet
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether there has been, or is intended to be, any similar UK involvement in the "Counterforce" element of the US Counter-proliferation Initiative, as there has been in the "Missile Defences" element and whether this will involve technology transfer to third parties.
§ Lord Henley
As I explained to the House on 9 March, the Counter-proliferation Initiative is a national US initiative. The UK is not directly involved.
