The Nuclear Free Local Authorities (NFLA) welcomes the passing of resolutions by East Ayrshire Council and Oxford City Council at recent meetings that support the multilateral Treaty for the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW) as the most effective way forward to a world free of such weapons. NFLA and Mayors for Peace member East Ayrshire Council passed two resolutions at a recent Council meeting. One calls on support for the TPNW and encourages the UK Government to engage in multilateral nuclear disarmament, whilst the other mandates the Chief Executive of the Council to write to the Strathcylde Local Authorities Pension Scheme calling on it to divest funds from companies involved in nuclear weapons assembly and production (Renfrewshire, Midlothian, Fife, West Dunbartonshire and Norwich have passed similar divestment resolutions, which NFLA strongly supports).
