Vote Out Trident - 2010 General Election
(See below for policy on nuclear power)
SNP policy on Trident nuclear weapons
The SNP Manifesto in the 2011 Scottish election says:
We know Scotland can be a voice for peace
and justice in the world
A Scotland that stands taller in the world
What’s Your Ambition for Scotland?
We want Scotland to be seen as a voice for peace and justice in the world. We will continue to support the work of the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and his efforts through the Nuclear Weapons Convention to eradicate nuclear, chemical and biological weapons across the planet. Our opposition to the Trident nuclear missile system and its planned replacement remains firm – there is no place for these weapons in Scotland and we will continue to press the UK government to scrap Trident and cancel its replacement.
The SNP manifesto in the Scottish election 2011 says:
We will continue to oppose UK plans for new nuclear power stations.
We are working hard to make Scotland Europe’s green energy powerhouse, so we can make the most of our vast green energy potential and create new jobs
The SNP Scottish Government in the 2007-2011 Parliament said that it was opposed to the construction of new nuclear power stations in Scotland. This approached was welcomed by a majority of all MSPs in a vote in the Scottish Parliament on 17 January 2008.
