Motion text

That this House recalls the statement by the former Prime Minister on 28th February with regard to the UK involvement in the US Missile Defence programme, that `I am sure that we will have the discussion in the House... When we have a proposition to put, we will come back and put it'; notes with concern that the Secretary of State for Defence made a written statement to this House one day before the summer recess, stating that at RAF Menwith Hill, `equipment will be installed and operated by the US Government to allow receipt of satellite warnings of potentially hostile missile launches'; regrets that the written statement does not reflect the spirit of the process that the former Prime Minister announced; and calls upon the Government to arrange a full debate to allow hon. Members to scrutinise in public the US Missile Defence deployment plans in the UK.
