Global Security: Non-Proliferation - Foreign Affairs Committee Contents

Letter from Luke Charles, CND Supporter

  I would like to comment that the Non Proliferation Treaty has been effective in preventing the spread of nuclear weapons to other countries. However the P5 are not honouring their commitments under Article 6 of the NPT and are modernising their nuclear arsenals. This could lead to a possible collapse of the NPT.

  Will the UK take a lead in honouring its own commitments under Article 6 and abandon plans to renew Trident. This money saved could help the poor and regenerate vast parts of the UK.

  Furthermore the US missile shield plans in Poland has produced a reaction in USSR, now called Russia.

  Will the government act to refuse the US permission to house missile defence systems in Fylingdales and Menwith Hill which will only hasten a new and dangerous arms race?
