A newsletter from the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament
The news that Theresa May covered up a failed Trident missile test in 2016 is a crisis for our democracy as well as a crisis for the security of Britain.

As CND's Kate Hudson said to the media: "this is a very serious failure of the Trident system and there's absolutely no doubt this would have impacted on the debate in Parliament on Trident replacement. The government's motivation for holding back this vital information is therefore clear. 

"Instead of crucial information being given by the government at the appropriate time to inform the MP's debate, it's been revealed by a senior naval figure months after it took place."

Missile cover-up: the question Theresa May won't answer

Theresa May was asked four times on the BBC this morning: "did you know the misfire of the missile had occurred when you made your first speech about Trident to Parliament in July 2016?". Four times she was asked and four times she refused to answer.

It's clear many more MPs would have voted against the £205 billion Trident system - even those who support a nuclear weapons system in principle - if they had known that Trident technology had proven so unreliable.

Demand an inquiry into the Trident crisis

If Theresa May won't tell us the truth about Trident, an inquiry must be conducted to uncover the truth.

This is an important moment for CND to make a political intervention - our activity can make a huge difference - so please support our two actions. 1) Use the CND lobby tool to write to your MP to demand an inquiry and 2) Campaigning costs money - please donate as generously as you can to sustain our campaign.
