Global Security: Non-Proliferation - Foreign Affairs Committee Contents

 Letter to Parliamentary Clerk, Home Office from the Committee Specialist

  The Foreign Affairs Committee is currently nearing completion of an inquiry into "Global Security: Non-Proliferation". In its memorandum to the Committee, submitted at the start of October, the FCO noted that the UK had signed but not yet ratified the International Convention on the Suppression of Acts of Nuclear Terrorism. The FCO said that the Home Office had the UK policy lead for the ratification process. The Convention came into force in July 2007.

  It would be very helpful if the Home Office could provide a note to the Committee, confirming that the UK has still not ratified the Convention, briefly explaining why, and giving an anticipated ratification timeframe.

  It would be appreciated if the Home Office could provide the note by 13 March.

  Thank you in advance for your assistance.
