SCND response to Gordon Brown on replacing Trident

The Scottish Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament criticised the Chancellor for support for replacing Trident \"Gordon Brown has pre-empted the debate into Trident Replacement, which the Government had promised. He has not even waited for the civil servants to complete their studies into the options available. Replacing Trident will mean that Britain will continue to spend £1 billion on nuclear weapons very year for 25 years. The Chancellor knows that £25 billion could have a major impact on reducing poverty at home and abroad. It should be used wisely and not squandered on dangerous Weapons of Mass Destruction.\" Said Allison Hunter, Secretary, Scottish Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament
