HC Deb 10 January 2002 vol 377 cc779-80

7 pm

Valerie Davey (Bristol, West)

The petition of the Bristol and West region of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament, to which I add my support, declares: We believe that an attempt by the United States to build a missile defence system will lead to increased instability and provoke a new nuclear arms race, are alarmed at the likely involvement of facilities at Fylingdales and Menwith Hill, and that a petition of over 520 signatures expressing similar concerns has been presented to the Prime Minister. The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government not to allow the use of the bases in a United States missile defence system. And the petitioners remain, etc.

To lie upon the Table.
