Trident Commission at Portcullis House: February 9th

The spring issue of UNA-UK’s New World reports that the Commission, created by the British-American Security Information Council [BASIC] will take place at Portcullis House, Westminster. 

The Commission will conduct research, host events and receive evidence throughout 2011, publishing a final report early in 2012. To this end it will bring together senior political, military, diplomatic, scientific and academic figures – including Sir Jeremy Greenstock, incoming chair of UNA-UK – to conduct the most rigorous and credible examination of UK nuclear weapons ever conducted outside government. 

It will be co-chaired by Lord Browne, former Labour Secretary of State for defence, Sir Malcolm Rifkind, Former Conservative defence and Foreign Secretary and Sir Menzies Campbell, former Shadow Liberal Democrat Foreign Secretary. 

Paul Ingram, executive director of  BASIC, has confirmed this news item. The relevant link sent on 1st February – www.basicint.org/tridentcommission – was not then finalized.
