General Election 2015

The final vote on Trident replacement will take place in 2016, so the MPs that are voted in at this election will be the ones that get to make the final decision on Trident. It is important to understand that this is not only a party political issue, but one of personal conscience – the last vote in 2007 saw a massive rebellion on the Government benches. 88 Labour MPs voting against the motion despite Labour imposing a ‘3 line whip’ the strongest instruction a party can give to force members to vote a certain way, alongside all SNP and Lib Dem MPs.

It is therefore vital that we demonstrate to candidates our opposition to Trident and let them know that our support relies on what way they would vote in 2016 if they were to win.
