Trouble Ahead: Risks and Rising Costs in the UK Nuclear Weapons Programme

This 60 page report reveals in detail the grave risks and dramatically rising costs emerging in the UK's nuclear weapons upgrade programmes. The 12 month study identifies precarious interdependencies, critical safety and project risks, and flawed cost projections in a programme that looks increasingly unlikely to meet its targets. Implications for policy-makers are outlined along with a set of recommendations.

Key findings will be presented, followed by responses from a panel comprising Fabian Hamilton MP, (Shadow Minister for Peace and Disarmament), Dr Michelle Bentley (Royal Holloway University of London/CIPP), Douglas Chapman MP (SNP) and  Celia McKeon (Rethinking Security). The event will finish with an audience discussion, with invited representatives from parliament, academia, non-governmental organisations, and the defence and finance sectors.

The fully referenced, externally reviewed work was researched and written by David Cullen, Nuclear Information Service (NIS).

The event is intended to initiate ongoing dialogue to understand the full significance and impacts of the findings and begin to develop practical proposals for government.

We look forward to seeing you.
