Bill Kidd welcomes the Pilgrimage for Peace

Bill Kidd welcomes to Glasgow Anniesland the Pilgrimage for Peace, who are highlighting the UK Government plans to spend £100bn on Trident while slashing vital public services.

 A primary aim of the 2013 Pilgrimage is to focus national public attention on the Government’s proposal to spend up to £100 billion renewing the Trident nuclear missile system, while continuing to slash NHS, education and social welfare budgets, including vital financial support for some of our most vulnerable and disadvantaged people and communities across the UK.

Mr Kidd, who serves as the Co-Convener of the Cross-Party Group in The Scottish Parliament on Nuclear Disarmament and is Co-President of Parliamentarians for Non-Proliferation and Disarmament (PNND) which links Parliamentarians from around the world who are all trying to rid the world of this menace, is pleased to welcome the Pilgrimage and hopes that members of the community will support their aim to abolish nuclear weapons from our soil.
