Delay in Trident replacement saves money and allows for alternatives

Commenting on reports that the decision on replacement of Britain’s Trident nuclear missile system is to be delayed by five years, former leader of the Liberal Democrats Sir Menzies Campbell said:

“If these press reports are true then it is clear that Liberal Democrat views have prevailed.

“Extending the life of the existing Trident fleet will not only save money in the short term; it will allow the opportunity to keep nuclear policy under review, to explore the possibilities of co-operation with the French, and even to consider other alternatives to like for like replacement of Trident.

“Liberal Democrats would be well satisfied with this outcome.”
