Parliamentary News Review 'Proliferation in Parliament': Summer 2011

The Summer 2011 edition of Proliferation in Parliament looks at parliamentary discussion over the cost and the procurement process for the UK’s renewal of its Trident nuclear weapons system, as well as the government’s consideration of alternatives to Trident and the broader context in which the project is being pursued. This edition also offers an update on the status of the UK’s contributions to nuclear disarmament and its other commitments on the international stage, in particular carrying forward the 2012 conference on a Middle East WMD Free Zone. The review concludes with a short round-up of parliamentary questions and developments in relation to proliferation challenges by other states, specifically Iran.
