SNPCND Roadmap to Nuclear Disarmament

SNPCND put forward a Roadmap to Nuclear Disarmament resolution at the SNP Spring Conference in April 2019. It was passed unanimously.

       Conference welcomes the continued support for nuclear disarmament and, with the impending inevitability of independence, we need to set out a clear timetable for removal of nuclear weapons from Scottish soil and waters.

       Conference believes that we need a practical description of the process and timescale to safely remove nuclear weapons at the very earliest opportunity on Scotland regaining our independence.

       Conference therefore agrees that we should develop a credible road map that has at its end point the removal of the Royal Navy’s nuclear armed and nuclear-powered submarine fleets from Scottish soil and the repurposing of related support bases on Scottish soil.

       Conference calls on the Scottish Government to work with the STUC to undertake a diversification study that will set out the positive contribution the skilled workers of Faslane and Coulport can make to the Scottish Defence sector free of nuclear weapons.

The SNPCND committee will consult with Scottish CND and the Scottish Trades Union Council and will work with the SNP Policy Development Committees to ensure the Roadmap is progressed. This is a very positive commitment from the SNP to take action to disarm on independence.
