MP supports arms treaty

EDINBURGH South Labour MP Ian Murray has backed Oxfam’s campaign for a strong global arms treaty to end the unregulated trade of guns, bombs and bullets.

He said: “A strong treaty is vital to tighten the net to eliminate irresponsible trade, and ensure that legitimate trade everywhere is properly regulated.

“Such an agreement would help to prevent the spread of conflict and ultimately save lives and reduce human rights abuses.”
