Could I also give you early notice that at the December meeting, Phil Bennion MEP has requested the opportunity to attend and answer questions on nuclear weapons, Syriia, North Korea, Iran or any topic on WMD where there is a European involvement. He didn’t mention Trident or the role of American bases in Europe, but I am sure he would be willing to outline his position  It would be nice to have representation from some of the other political parties, so if you have contacts, please let them know.
