Abstract: An uncertainty principle, due to Hardy, for Fourier transform pairs on $\Bbb R$ says that if the function $f$ is ``very rapidly decreasing'', then the Fourier transform cannot also be ``very rapidly decreasing'' unless $f$ is identically zero. In this paper we state and prove an analogue of Hardy's theorem for the $n$-dimensional Euclidean motion group.
