Trident Nuclear Missile Programme — Continuous At-Sea Deterrent — 10 Apr 2019 at 18:43

The motion supported by a majority of MPs in this vote was:

  • That this House has
  • considered the 50th anniversary of the continuous at sea deterrent.

There were no operative elements to this motion; it was probably intended merely as a mechanism to enable MPs to discuss the subject of the United Kingdom's Trident nuclear missile programme, which operates continuous at-sea deterrence with at least one submarine always on patrol.
