Trident Survey

We would like your views on continuing with nuclear weapons on our submarine fleet.

We held a debate at County Hall with  Bruce Kent and Unite the Union. Look at the blog pages for information.

Labour's defence review consultation document - click here.

These are key questions from the review:

How can we ensure that Britain’s military capabilities and our Armed Forces are fit to meet the challenges we will face?

Will renewal of Britain’s nuclear deterrent help us protect Britain’s security?

How can we best contribute to international efforts towards nuclear disarmament?

What would be the implications of giving up Britain’s nuclear deterrent for British jobs and industry, and are there ways in which any problems could be alleviated?

A: Nt relevant as the process of multilateral disarmament will take many years as it will require a significant change in the attitudes of the current regimes in Russia and China

Q: How can we best contribute to international efforts towards nuclear disarmament?
A: By making it clear that we will recue our Nuclear Arsenal in line with progress towards full multilateral nuclear disarmament. To propose unilateral nuclear disarmament will not influence rogue states (North Korea) nor those powers who conceivably be hostile (sadly Russia at the moment)

A: By having strong conventional defences which can only be afforded if we abandon absurd and obsolete prestige projects like Trident which have no strategic value.

Q: What would be the implications of giving up Britain’s nuclear deterrent for British jobs and industry, and are there ways in which any problems could be alleviated?
A: There would be a decrease in jobs, the maintenance and the protection of such weapons but in the long run the employment would balance out. Military personnel drafted elsewhere. And people directly involved with Trident could easily be reemployed elsewhere

Q: What would be the implications of giving up Britain’s nuclear deterrent for British jobs and industry, and are there ways in which any problems could be alleviated?
A: I would say it was a boon, more money to invest else where like securing the jobs at risk from brexit. I’m sorry I didn’t realise these expensive subs employed more than a few hundred which could easily be re assigned elsewhere.

Q: How can we best contribute to international efforts towards nuclear disarmament?
A: By disarming ourselves, or at least cutting down. They are relics from the cold war and irrelevant in today’s society. What is the point in spending billions on this to never use it. spend it on services we actually use, or if it has to go on defence on peace keeping soldiers. Lets make up for our mistakes by becoming a a force of peace and security. Anyway Germany doesn’t have them, and seems alot better off because of it.

A: Jobs could be created in sustainable energy. Solar panels, wind farms etc. An industry for peace not destruction. The millions of pounds saved could be diverted to the NHS

Q: What would be the implications of giving up Britain’s nuclear deterrent for British jobs and industry, and are there ways in which any problems could be alleviated?
A: The skills of the workforce can and should be used in alternative production as suggested in the Defence Diversification Agency proposals, with the money currently committed to Trident Renewal spent on supporting Renewable Energy to meet the other existential threat to life on this planet: climate change. It should be noted that many in the military themselves think that the Trident concept is already obsolete in view of technological developments in cyber warfare & underwater drones. The defence industry needs investment in equipment more appropriate to the modern world.

Q: How can we best contribute to international efforts towards nuclear disarmament?
A: A pre-requisite is to abandon the the plans for Trident renewal so that the UK Government can honestly join the International dialogue with non-nuclear states to prevent nuclear proliferation and show its preparedness to meet its obligations under the NPT.

Q: What would be the implications of giving up Britain’s nuclear deterrent for British jobs and industry, and are there ways in which any problems could be alleviated?
A: By managing the removal of such weapons, plans could be made to employ the skills of workers to build military equipment that could actually be of some use to the armed forces facing the current threats, or for none military uses.
