Motion text

That this House recognises that the only security from the threat of nuclear weapons is their global elimination under strict and effective international control; welcomes the fact that the United Kingdom has undertaken, under Article VI of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, to pursue negotiations in good faith on effective measures relating to nuclear disarmament; endorses the view that the long-term viability of the non-proliferation regime requires the continued support of the United Kingdom; endorses the unanimous opinion of the International Court of Justice that there exists an obligation to pursue in good faith and bring to a conclusion negotiations leading to nuclear disarmament in all its aspects under strict and effective international control; welcomes the Model Nuclear Weapons Convention submitted by Costa Rica to the Secretary General of the United Nations on 17th November 1997 as a work in progress setting forth the legal, technical and political issues that should be considered in order to obtain an actual nuclear weapons convention; and urges Her Majesty's Government to initiate multilateral negotiations leading to the early conclusion of a nuclear weapons convention.
