Anne Main seeks Government assurance on the nuclear deterrent

18th December 2018

Following the Government statement on the modernising defence programme, Anne Main seeks confirmation of the Government’s commitment to maintaining our nuclear deterrent.

Can my right hon. Friend confirm that our party is absolutely committed to maintaining our nuclear deterrent? I think that many Conservative Members fear that the Labour party would make its funding cuts by cutting it.

What is clear is that if we want a party that will come to the defence of our armed forces, invest more money in our armed forces and ensure that we continue to keep a nuclear deterrent, it is the Conservative party that will always do that.
