Scrap Trident: The Real Alternative

16 07 2013


CND launched a new report entitled ‘The Real Alternative: What the government’s Trident Alternatives Review isn’t telling you’,

The report finds that,

‘The government’s failure to consider non-replacement of the Trident nuclear weapons system is an abdication of responsibility’

and says,

‘Non-replacement is a credible option, which offers serious strategic and economic benefits’. 

CND argue the government should disarm rather than replace Trident.

The government’s own Review is likely to advocate a reduction in the number of submarines and an end to their round-the-clock operation. CND believes this will be a step forward which will help open up the wider debate, but the full disarmament option must also be on the table.
