Bill Signs the #NuclearBan Treaty on this historic day!

State represenatives gather in New York at the United Nations Headquarters today, 20th September 2017, on the eve of the International Day of Peace to sign the historic Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons. As of 4pm (GMT) 42 countries, of the required 50, have signed the treaty and two of these have already ratified it. It is anticipated that over 122 states will likely sign in the coming days. 

MSPs, including myself, have gather outside of the Scottish Parliament today to show support for the International Day of Peace and, significantly, the Nuclear Ban Treaty Signing.
