    In Stockholm, the New Zealand Minister of the Environment, Mr. Duncan MacIntyre, urged the United Nations Environment Conference to bring pressure on France to halt its nuclear testing programme in the South Pacific.

    Speaking to the plenary body or Friday (9 June), Mr. MacIntyre raised the issue as Peru sought approval of the Conference Committee on Pollutants that all atmospheric testing of nuclear weapons be brought to an end.
