Better Together and Trident

The Better Together campaign have issued a briefing which supports Trident nuclear weapons. The paper was produced for MSPs in advance of the Trident debate on 20 March. The first part of the briefing describes nuclear weapons as "the ultimate guarantee of our national security" and says "the UK government has committed to maintain the strategic nuclear deterrent and to continue with a programme to renew it."

 .
Scottish CND chair Arthur West said "This is a tactical mistake by the Better Together campaign. There are many people who are opposed to Trident who are not supporters of independence."
