Nuclear Weapons Hazards

EDM number 687 in 2013-14, proposed by Paul Flynn on 06/11/2013.
Categorised under the topics of Arms control and Defence equipment and procurement.

That this House congratulates Nuclear Information Services and The Observer newspaper for exposing the ultimate hazard posed by the possession of nuclear weapons in the article, How a NATO war game took the world to the brink of nuclear disaster, published on 3 November 2013; believes that the implications of making errors with nuclear weapons unveiled by the article demonstrates that nuclear weapons undermine the UK's national security; and therefore calls for the Government to place all British nuclear weapons into international multilateral disarmament negotiations along with nuclear weapons held by the other Permanent Five Countries, India, Pakistan, Israel and North Korea.

This motion has been signed by a total of 9 MPs.
