Trident Replacement — Case not yet proven — rejected — 14 Mar 2007 at 18:53

Claire Ward MP, Watford voted with the majority (Teller for the Noes).

The majority of MPs voted against changing the motion supporting the Government's nuclear weapons policy to one which read.[1]

  • This House
  • notes the Government's decision, as set out in the White Paper The Future of the United Kingdom's Nuclear Deterrent (Cm 6994),[2] to take the steps necessary to maintain the UK minimum strategic nuclear deterrent beyond the life of the existing system and to take further steps towards meeting the United Kingdom's disarmament responsibilities under Article VI of the Non-Proliferation Treaty,[3]
  • but believes that the case is not yet proven and remains unconvinced of the need for an early decision.

The Government's original motion, still intact, was subsequently voted for by a majority of MPs.[4]

Seven MPs voted inconsistently between the two motions.[5]
