Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty

Volume 506: debated on Monday 22 February 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what discussions he has had with the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs on the Government’s position at the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty Review Conference in May 2010. (317451)

I have regular exchanges on nuclear matters with the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs and my other Cabinet colleagues.

We continue to work with partners from across the international community to seek a mandate for concrete, realistic and balanced action to strengthen the NPT’s three mutually reinforcing pillars: non-proliferation, disarmament, and the peaceful use of nuclear energy, as well as addressing the threats to nuclear security.
