NIS Response to Labour’s Defence Review

Nuclear Information Service has submitted a response to the Labour Party's defence policy review.

Our submission majors on Labour party policy on Trident nuclear weapons, but we argue that the UK needs to reappraise its approach to dealing with global conflicts, and take a more pro-active approach based on 'sustainable security' techniques rather than relying on expensive military interventions to react to crises.

We argue that the Trident nuclear weapons system does not guarantee the UK's security and argue that replacing Trident would be an irresponsible and risky policy in the light of the system's cost, inflexibility, and likely future vulnerabilities.  We also call for the UK to take a leadership role in driving forward global arms control initiatives.
