Sir: Professor Trevor Taylor and Paul Cornish ( Letters, 16 July), commenting on my letter (14 July), asks 'if it is Mrs Young's view that we should not defend ourselves if the technology is American'? No: my view is that we should not, without examining it, become part of a quite specific new global military strategy. The US Department of Defense's 'Defense counterproliferation initiative', which my letter had been about, is just that.

Yours faithfully,
