Letter from Reginald Hibbert to Sir Michael Palliser on France’s nuclear deterrent policy (Paris, 21 December 1981)

On 21 December 1981, Reginald Hibbert, the United Kingdom’s Ambassador to France, sends a letter to Sir Michael Palliser, Permanent Secretary of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO), in response to a question by the FCO on France’s relative immunity to the anti-nuclear weapons protests which have spread throughout Europe and Britain. During the Euromissiles crisis, the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND), a British organisation, holds massive demonstrations calling for unilateral nuclear disarmament by the United Kingdom, international nuclear disarmament and tighter international arms regulation. The British Ambassador analyses the background of France’s nuclear deterrent policy and explains the fundamental principles on which this policy is based.
