Submission from Mr D J Finch
Although the NPT has been reasonably successful
in stopping proliferation, the "big powers" have been
very reluctant to continue nuclear disarmament proposals. In fact
the opposite is likely to ensue (eg Trident).
The UK in my opinion should halt the Trident
renewal programme and take a world lead in honouring Article 6 of
the NPT. It should also refuse to allow Fylingdales and Menwith
Hill to be updated for the US Missile Defence System.
