Sir Menzies Campbell MP has today welcomed the launch the Top Level Group, a cross party effort to promote multilateral nuclear disarmament which Sir Menzies co-founded. Other members include the former Defence Secretary Des Browne MP, Sir Malcolm Rifkind MP and Margaret Beckett MP.
The Group share the vision of a world free of nuclear weapons and have come together on a cross party basis to work towards that end.
Commenting on the launch of the Group, Sir Menzies said:
“The opportunity for multilateral nuclear disarmament has never been greater. A number of events have brought this about, not least President Obama’s decision to make multilateral disarmament a priority and the focus provided by the 2010 Review Conference for the Nuclear Non Proliferation Treaty.
“This is a debate in which Britain needs to play a part. The accumulated experience of our group will inform and direct that debate.”
