SNP, Plaid and Greens together against Trident

Scottish CND has welcomed the joint statement from the leaders of the SNP, Plaid Cymru and the Green Party making Trident a red line issue in a hung parliamentrliament.  Arthur West, Chair Scottish CND, said:

"We welcomes Nicola Stugeon's pledge to make abandoning Trident the key demand in terms of any SNP support in a hung Parliament. We recognise that the SNP's calls for nuclear disarmament played a key role in raising Trident during the referendum campaign. It is also valuable that Plaid Cymru and the Green party joined them in stressing that this was an unjustifiable waste of money at a time of austerity."
The stance taken by these parties is in line with a resolution adopted at Scottish CND's annual conference in November. The encouraged the parties to make Trident a red line issue and urged Scottish CND supporters to promote this approach during the election campaign.
