Ratification Of Un Convention On Physical Protection Of Nuclear Material

EDM number 209 in 2009-10, proposed by Dai Davies on 24/11/2009.
Categorised under the topic of International law.

That this House notes the Government's intention, as set out in the written Answer to the hon. Member for Aylesbury of 21 October 2009, Official Report, column 1516W, to ratify the UN Convention on Physical Protection of Nuclear Material; believes that the sections in the Convention on the protection of confidentiality of information could exclude the notification of emergency authorities, including local authorities, of prior notification of nuclear material being transported through their area of responsibility; further believes that the Government has not justified the provisions allowing member states to withdraw nuclear materials from the provisions of the Convention if it reasonably decides to do so; further believes the Government is misguided in not delaying ratification beyond the 21 sitting days allowed for under the Ponsonby Rule provisions; remains unconvinced that the appropriate committees of both Houses have scrutinised the text with evidence from witnesses from the Government; and therefore further believes ratification should still be held up until due scrutiny has taken place.

This motion has been signed by a total of 23 MPs.
