From Mr Colin Campbell

Sir: The French Ambassador says (Another View, 16 June) "the suspension of the nuclear tests in 1992 was a little too early, in that it did not allow France to obtain all the data needed for the move to laboratory simulation already made by other nuclear powers."

If this is a correct appreciation of the situation, why then does not France request the other nuclear powers to furnish it with the necessary information? Why do its "allies", Britain and the US, not offer to do this anyway?

Yours faithfully,

COLIN CAMPBELL
