    Background: ENGLAND: SHEFFIELD

    As the campaign for nuclear disarmament (CND) continued its annual conference in Sheffield on November 25, a controversial motion proposing a specific campaign against Soviet nuclear missiles was dismissed without being put to a vote. Many delegates argued for action to counter the impression that CND is only concerned with the removal of United States cruise missiles from the UK and is therefore pro-Soviet. The debate was heated, but in the end a majority voted not to call for a vote on a campaign highlighting Soviet nuclear weapons. The decision came the day after delegates approved a new campaign against the siting of US cruise missiles at Molesworth Base, near Cambridge. Ian Davison of Scottish CND warned the conference that failure to approve the day's motion would mean the news media would make "mincemeat" of the disarmament movement.
