BRIGHTON and Hove City Councillors are due to vote on nuclear weapons for the second time in just over a month. Councillors will be voting on whether “to call on the UK government to work for global peace” and to declare its support for a prohibition of Nuclear Weapons. The debate and vote were previously held at a full council meeting on December 17. It was abandoned after the council’s webcast service broke half-way through, effectively excluding the press and public. As a result, the vote was not taken in accordance with requirements – meaning a confirmatory vote will now have to take place at a meeting on Thursday.
