Trident Submarine Proposals

EDM 1477

(2010 - 2011 session)

Corbyn, Jeremy

March 2011

That this House strongly condemns the Government plans to order the steel for the first new Trident replacement submarine before any formal decision is made on whether to go ahead with the project, a decision not due until 2016; notes that the decision is at variance with the commitment given during debate on the Strategic Defence and Security Review that Trident would not be renewed in this Parliament; and therefore calls for a statement by the Secretary of State for Defence and a proper Parliamentary debate before any further commitments on renewing Trident are made.
