Scottish Parliament to debate Trident

There will be a debate on Trident, on a motion from the Scottish Government, at 2 pm on Wednesday 20 March. Please encourage your MSPs to speak against Trident. A 4 page briefing from Scottish CND contains key points.

Emails can be sent to MSPs through writetothem.com  scotland4peace.org has email details and MSPs' voting records. Contact details are also on the Parliament website  

 

The wording of the motion is:

S4M-05988 Keith Brown: Trident—That the Parliament acknowledges the devastating humanitarian impacts of nuclear weapons; endorses the Secretary-General of the United Nations’s five-point plan for nuclear disarmament; calls on the UK Government to acknowledge the opposition of the Scottish Parliament to nuclear weapons and to the presence of Trident in Scotland, and further calls on the UK Government to explore options for the removal of Trident ahead of the so-called main gate decision in 2016.

 

The debate will take place on the day that George Osborne is presenting his budget at Westminster.  Please encourage MSPs to say that Trident should be cut, not welfare or public services.
