Thurs 18th January – WB&D TUC AGM 7.15pm Civic Centre speaker on:
Join the Big Trident Debate – A broad coalition of individuals and organisations has launched a campaign to secure a full public and parliamentary debate on the replacement of Britain's nuclear weapons system. The website www.bigtridentdebate.org.uk contains a statement calling for a full debate which individuals and organisations are encouraged to sign. Join the debate!
A June 2006 ICM poll shows that 81% of the British public believe that a decision on Trident replacement should be made by a vote in Parliament, not by the Prime Minister alone. Opposition to Trident Replacement has increased from 54% last autumn to 59%.
CND encourages you to contact Foreign Secretary Margaret Beckett, encouraging her to initiate and facilitate the public and parliamentary debate on Trident Replacement. Please ask your MP to sign EDMs 2702 and 2703, which call for a full debate on the issue of Trident replacement.
