Eve of Budget Message for Members of Parliament

Rochdale and Littleborough Peace Group is proud to be amongst the many organisations and individuals who contributed to the cost of the billboard currently displayed at Westminster underground station asking all our MPs, on the eve of the budget, 'How much are you spending on Trident?'

The answer, of course, is £2.2 billion and rising. This is what the present and the previous Government has squandered every year on a nuclear missile system we do not need, whilst at the same depriving Rochdale of its hospital services and forcing our Council to make drastic cuts in essential services throughout the borough.

The message is clear; we need Governments to stop spending on things we do not need and to transfer the money saved to spending on the services we do need.
