LIBERAL DEMOCRATS DO NOT BELIEVE THAT CASD WILL MAKE OUR WORLD SAFER AND THE ££££S SPENT ON TRUDENT REPLACEMENT CAN BE BETTER SPENT ON HEALTH, SOCIAL CARE, EDUCATION AND CLIMATE CHANGE EFFECTS MITIGATION. Our defence policy does not support the 4 Successor submarines or their deadly warheads.
We ask all decent minded MPs to vote against this resolution for the sake of peace and stability.
Trident debate on Monday 18th July:: what the resolution will say
That this House supports the Government’s assessment in the 2015 National Security Strategy and Strategic Defence and Security Review, that the UK’s independent minimum credible nuclear deterrent, based on a Continuous at Sea Deterrence posture, will remain essential to our security today as it has for over 60 years, and for as long as the global security situation demands, to deter the most extreme threats to our national security and way of life and that of our allies; supports the decision to take the necessary steps required to maintain the current posture by replacing the current VANGUARD Class submarines with four Successor submarines; recognises the importance of this programme to the UK’s defence industrial base and in supporting thousands of highly skilled engineering jobs; notes that the Government will continue to provide annual reports to Parliament on the programme; recognises that the UK remains committed to reduce our overall nuclear weapon stockpile by the mid-2020s; and supports the Government’s commitment to continue work towards a safer and more stable world, pressing for key steps towards multilateral disarmament.
Yet another reason to campaign against the present careless and unthinking Government.
