The Government are strongly committed to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), which is the cornerstone of the nuclear non-proliferation regime. The UK is determined to make every effort to ensure that this review cycle results in a positive and substantive final document. We will work with allies and EU partners at the May 2007 NPT Preparatory Committee to lay the groundwork for this. We have already made a contribution by announcing, in the White Paper on the Future of the UK's Nuclear Deterrent, a further 20 per cent. cut in our warhead stockpile.

Little Nuclear Dai at it again I see. For all his fans on the site check out the web site below for good info on the reaction in the local media on how valuable people are taking the imput from little Dai in Blaenau Gwent.
The researcher writing these questions must have a problem with the Gent from Blaena Gwent as all this is doing is to make him look rather pathetically stupid in the eyes of the people he is supposed to be representing. Blaenau Gwent is not on the list it seems as he is more interested in nuclear questions than anything that could benefit the people here. A little like Llew Smith one of his mentors who knew more about Cuba and Nicuaragua than Cwm and Nantyglo.
All these questions just wasting money and no benefit to anybody really except some filing cabinet in the office of little dai which will never be opened for inspection I suppose.

Get a grip and stop this nonsense please...
