MSP calls on Glasgow University to drop investment in arms trade
Half a million pounds of endowment funds are weapons related
AN MSP and campaigners have called on a leading Scottish university to move its money away from two controversial arms trade companies.
The University of Glasgow holds over half a million pounds in QinetiQ Group and BAE Systems, which have sold weapons to dictatorships.
BAE Systems is the world's 3rd largest arms company, with total sales of nearly $27bn for 2013. The company has faced criticism for the ethics of its business dealings.
