All but one of Scotland's 59 MPs has voted against renewing Trident

Yesterday, the House of Commons voted to renew Trident despite the opposition of 58 of Scotland's 59 MPs.  

Arthur West - chair of Scottish CND said

"Those MPs who have voted for Trident replacement have shown a blatant disregard for the views of almost all of Scotland's MPs and MSPs. They have also completely disrespected the significant numbers of people in Scotland who want to get rid of nuclear weapons from our country."   

"We will continue to work flat out to get rid of nuclear weapons from Scotland. This work will include supporting efforts to secure a second independence referendum as a route to get rid of nuclear weapons from Scotland.

 

 

 

 

"It is just plain daft to spend billions of pounds on Trident replacement when the money could be spent on decent things like housing, education and socially useful jobs.

The House of Commons vote is very disappointing and this is why we welcome the fact that the policy of the SNP and the Greens is to make nuclear weapons unlawful. It is now time to put that policy into action as part of the response to  this misguided Westminster decision." Arthur West, Chair of Scottish CND.

UK wide 472 MPs voted for Trident renewal, and 117 against. 

Scotland is represented by 59 MPs at Westminster. The 58 who voted against Trident renewal included 54 SNP, 1 Labour, 1 Liberal Democrat and 2 Independents. The only Scottish MP who voted for Trident renewal was the 1 Tory, David Mundell. Below are details:
