Motion text

That this House, mindful of the safety of the people of Britain and fearing that the use of facilities in Britain such as those at Fylingdales and Menwith Hill in Yorkshire for the United States National Missile Defence programme might make the United Kingdom a prime target in any future military conflict, calls on Her Majesty's Government to raise with President George Bush the grave concerns expressed by its Foreign Affairs Select Committee and many other honourable Members about Britain's potential involvement in the NMD programme and to make a public statement about its attitude towards the use of such facilities.
