The party is concerned that American relations with westfrn Europe under the Carter administration are detfriorating - it claims this is due to a lack of co.shstency in its foreign policy. A Reagan adMdohstration would expect US allies to share in collective defence. A party spokesman has said: "We intend to do more in alliance security."
