The Nuclear Weapons Policy Liaison Group

First convened in 2008, this group of experts has continued to meet regularly to coordinate and maintain effective and positive working links with parliamentarians across the political spectrum on UK nuclear weapons issues, in particular in relation to the renewal of the UK's Trident nuclear weapons system.

In October 2011, a British Pugwash working group launched a project to provide information in support of a public debate on how to balance the UK’s supply of and demand for energy between now and 2050, without reneging on the government’s commitment to reduce our emissions of greenhouse gases by 80 per cent by 2050.
