Cluster bombs

Part of letter to our MP, David Maclean:

Further to my previous letters: I understand from a recent Guardian article that the UK has called for a ban on cluster bombs to protect civilians – good news. I would be grateful if you could press the government to ensure that it covers all cluster bombs, including ‘smart’ and self-destruct sub-munitions. I agree with the quote from Handicap International that cluster munitions should be “moral[ly] unacceptabl[e] in the international community”.
