Scottish Politics

We call on the Scottish Government and the Scottish Parliament to endorse the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, and to agree that an independent Scotland would sign it at once.

Meanwhile, we are asking the Government to prepare for the Treaty by taking steps to ensure that, as far as possible, its provisions are incorporated into the Programme for Government and into Scottish domestic legislation. 

We are calling on our Scottish representatives to continue to resist the UK’s commitment to increase its stockpile of nuclear weapons and put pressure on the UK to completely change its nuclear policy.

We are also asking the Government to step up to its own responsibilities – especially to fully acknowledge the risks to Scotland arising from nuclear convoys, and to demand an end to these, since it is impossible to effectively keep the Scottish population safe from the risks of a nuclear accident.
