Asked for the Prime Minister’s view concerning a replacement for the Trident nuclear defence programme following the questions raised at PMQs earlier, the PMOS said that the Prime Minister would express that view at the appropriate time. He hadn’t said anything more today than he had said in the past. Put to him that as a multi-lateralist he wouldn’t get rid of Trident unilaterally, the PMOS said that the Prime Minister believed in maintaining the UK’s defence. In terms of Trident we would talk about that at the appropriate time. Put to him that the Prime Minister had implied there would be a decision by the House of Commons, the PMOS said that the Prime Minister had said there would be a proper discussion. The point he was making was that this was not something we were suddenly going to announce.
