Scottish CND have said that the cover up following the failed Trident missile test last year gives considerable cause for concern.
Arthur West chair of Scottish CND said -
It is scandalous that there now appears to be a cover up of this incident. This is sharp contrast to the publicity given to previous tests which we understand have taken place in 1994 , 1995, 1997, 2000,2005, 2009 and 2012.
Arthur West said that Scottish CND are supporting calls from across the Peace Movement for an inquiry into both the incident and the decision not to make the information available to Parliament.
Scottish CND are also asking their members and supporters to contact their MPs and ask them to support this call for an inquiry.

Some points about Trident Missile Fiasco

Last year Scotland held numerous demos to oppose the Trident vote. Now we found out that Theresa May covered up a failed Trident missile test right before the vote. We must challenge the UK's bad decision. Negotiations for a Nuclear Weapons Ban Treaty start in March at The United Nations meeting in New York. The Ban is supported by most member states – but not the UK, and the UK media are not reporting it so far. It is up to us to tell the good news.
ICAN calls for an worldwide Week of Action from 10th to 17th Feb.
SCND and others are working with the Scrap Trident Coalition to make a big impression!
Are you willing to organise a street stall or arrange a photograph opportunity in your local area after work one evening or during the weekend in the week of action?
We have postcards and leaflets to tell the Ban Treaty story (from the SCND and Edinburgh Peace & Justice offices). We need everyone in Scotland to see them. You can ask your local MSPs to get involved and get everyone to register on http://nuclearban.org.

Scottish CND has received the very sad news that Eric Wallace passed away over the weekend .
Eric was a stalwart of Scottish CND and the wider Peace Movement for many years.
Up until recently he could be seen at the weekly vigil at Faslane
Eric was quite simply a tireless campaigner in the struggle to get rid of nuclear weapons from Scotland and the world.
He was also a very decent and caring human being . Eric will be sadly missed. His lifelong partner, Dorothy also passed away earlier this year. Our thought are with their families.
