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?
