Response to the report of the Trident Commission

Vernon Coaker MP Labour’s Shadow Defence Secretary, responding to the report of the Trident Commission, said:

Labour is committed to ensuring Britain retains a minimum credible independent nuclear deterrent, which we believe is best delivered through a Continuous At Sea Deterrent.

We will look closely at the Commission’s findings and welcome its acknowledgement that in the current international security climate it is in the UK’s national interest to retain a nuclear deterrent.

Between now and the Main Gate decision that will be taken in 2016, we will continue to examine ways in which this can be delivered most efficiently, based on expert military advice, capability and cost.
