Those who participated in the Nuclear Test Programme made a significant contribution to the safety and security of the UK by ensuring that we were equipped with an appropriate nuclear capability; it is right that their contribution is recognised.

The Prime Minister and I look forward to meeting with representatives of the Nuclear Test Veteran community shortly.
