Letter from various academics (Plus two other letters incl one from Rae Street): Jack Straw states “only a simpleton could think replacing Trident would breach the nuclear non-proliferation treaty”, (Report, November 24). We would remind Mr Straw of the United Kingdom’s obligations under article VI of the nuclear non-proliferation treaty (NPT), which states: “Each of the parties to the treaty undertakes to pursue negotiations in good faith on effective measures relating to cessation of the nuclear arms race at an early date and to nuclear disarmament and on a treaty on general and complete disarmament under strict and effective control.”
