Motion text

That this House notes the publication of the Nukes of Hazard: nuclear bomb convoys on our road report, published on 21 September 2016, which documents the nuclear warhead convoys which are regularly driven across the UK; is deeply concerned that Freedom of Information requests have shown that these convoys have experienced more than 180 incidents, including breakdowns and collisions, in the last 16 years; is further concerned that an opinion poll showed low levels of awareness of the convoys among the public in the areas through which they routinely travel; believes that this report highlights the dangers inherent in transporting nuclear weapons around the UK; and calls on the Government to take immediate steps to cease this practice.
