SNP call for debate on Trident Replacement

The Scottish National Party are planning to launch a cross-party bill in the new year which would call for full parliamentary scrutiny of government p roposals to replace Trident. SNP defence spokesperson Angus Robertson MP said: \"It is ironic that Tony Blair sent our troops to war in Iraq on the pretext that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction. Yet at the same time he bases the UK\'s existing weapons of mass destruction in Scotland and refuses to rule out a new generation of nuclear weapon. Tony Blair would prefer the empty grandeur of a weapon that is useless in the struggle against global terrorism instead of the forces who can actually root out terrorist groups.\"
