Chemical Weapons Convention - Declaration of Protective Programme for 2018

My right hon. Friend the Minister of State for Defence in the House of Lords (The Earl Howe) has made the following Written Ministerial Statement.

The Minister of State for Defence in the House of Lords, The Earl Howe: The UK's chemical protection programme is designed to protect against the use of chemical weapons. Such a programme is permitted by the Chemical Weapons Convention, with which the United Kingdom is fully compliant. Under the terms of the Convention, we are required to provide information annually to the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons. In accordance with the Government's commitment to openness, I am placing in the Library of the House a copy of the summary that has been provided to the Organisation outlining the UK's chemical protection programme in 2018.
