House of Commons debate on Trident Renewal

In his capacity as Shadow Defence Secretary, Vernon spoke in the Commons today on the topic of nuclear deterrence.

Vernon said that the Labour party is "proud of our strong record in Office on multilateral nuclear disarmament". He made clear Labour's position that "[t]he UK should maintain the minimum, credible, independent nuclear deterrent through a continuous-at-sea system, delivered in the most cost effective way, while advancing along the path to multilateral disarmament".
