Plans to raise cap on Trident nuclear warhead stockpile may breach United Nations treaty.

Scotsman 18th May 2021, Plans to raise cap on Trident nuclear warhead stockpile may breach United
Nations treaty. Plans to raise the on cap on Britain’s Trident nuclear
warhead stockpile may fall foul of international law, experts have warned.
The UK Government intends to increase the number of warheads available to
its nuclear fleet at Faslane from 180 to a maximum of 260 as part of its
integrated review of defence and foreign policy. Academics at the London
School of Economics (LSE) have warned the increase in warheads would be
inconsistent with the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons,
to which the UK is a nuclear weapon state party.
