18. To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what progress has been made on securing a Non-Proliferation Treaty review in 2010. (204813)

The non-proliferation treaty is subject to a review cycle, with the next review in 2010. Prior to 2010 the UK will use the NPT Preparatory Committee to take forward work to strengthen the treaty. The UK will promote consensus around key measures encompassing the treaty’s three pillars—zero tolerance of proliferation; safe, secure and peaceful use of nuclear technology; and reinvigorated commitment to a world free from nuclear weapons.
