- To the Ministers of Foreign Affairs and Defence - To know - considering that:

on 11 November 1982 the Radical parliamentarian Cicciomessere had questioned the Ministers of Foreign Affairs, of Industry, of State Participation and of Foreign Trade about the news of a contract under way between the Technimont Company (Montedison Group) and the Iraqi company State Establishment of Pesticide Production for the creation of a plant in Iraq for the production of pesticides of the kind of Paraoxon and Amiton, a production which is in fact aimed at covering the production of chemical weapons;

no reply was ever given to the above question;

if it is true that a well-known Italian company for the production of chemical products has established a plant for the production of Parathion pesticide;

which role the Italian Government played in the relative negotiations;

lastly, if it is true that the above plants, thanks to the simple modification of the chemical formula, could easily pass from the production of Parathion (already so toxic as to have been withdrawn from the market in Italy) to the production of nerve gas for military purposes.

The government never answered the two questions.
