Manifesto for a nuclear disarmament agenda


The Nuclear Information Service calls upon the next British Government to:

  • end nuclear weapons production at AWE Aldermaston and Burghfield
  • return 3 Trident submarines to port and disarm them (4th boat not currently in service)
  • begin a programme to return all existing warheads to AWE for decommissioning
  • improve the safety regime for road transport of warhead convoys from Scotland to AWE for decommissioning
  • ensure safe storage of plutonium and highly enriched uranium from warheads at AWE
  • lead the world in meeting our obligations to disarm nuclear weapons under the Non-Proliferation Treaty
  • urgently commission further research on decommissioning, safe storage and verification techniques for global nuclear disarmament
