As the proposals for the Atlantic nuclear force seem to be meeting with such little support from our allies, and from the Prime Minister's allies on the Left wing of his own party, can the right hon. Gentleman tell the House, without being too laboured or long-winded about it—[Interruption.]—whether he has any alternative plan to offer?
One reason why Questions are not as productive as they should be is that the hon. Gentleman puts the same laboured questions every week. We had all this last week and the week before. I answered this Question fully last week. This matter is being discussed at the Working Group in Paris. None of us expects real progress on the matter before the German elections.
