Motion S4M-10724: Keith Brown, Clackmannanshire and Dunblane, Scottish National Party, Date Lodged: 04/08/2014

Trident 

 

That the Parliament supports the speediest safe withdrawal of nuclear weapons from Scotland; opposes the renewal of Trident nuclear weapons; believes that the predicted cost of around £4 billion a year in the mid-2020s for Trident renewal is totally unjustifiable; calls on the UK Government to set out which major defence procurement projects, or other areas of public spending, will have to be cut to pay for Trident renewal; notes that only a Yes vote in the independence referendum will guarantee the withdrawal of Trident nuclear weapons from Scotland; supports the aim of removing Trident within the first term of the Scottish Parliament following independence, and confirms its commitment to working with nuclear and non-nuclear states to create the conditions for a world without nuclear weapons.
