Global Security: Non-Proliferation - Foreign Affairs Committee Contents

 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.
