NIS Legal Challenge to the UK Government's Trident Replacement


NIS legal challenge to the UK government decision to replace the Trident nuclear weapons system until 2050.

On Tuesday 10th June 2008, the high court will hear the NIS case for challenging the government's plan to renew the Trident nuclear weapons system. Grounds for the claim are that the government failed to carry out a promised Consultation and that building a new nuclear system is contrary to international law and the Non- Proliferation Treaty.
