Views on nuclear weapons:

April 2010 - Replied to a letter from Scotland's for Peace saying that he would vote against the replacement of Trident -

"I have always opposed nuclear weapons. I do not believe they offer a deterrent in the modern world. Nuclear weapons offer no strategic benefit and I believe that global disarmament is a goal that all nations should work towards. When the House of Commons voted on the retention of nuclear weapons in 2007 I voted against the Government and against the renewal of Trident. Nothing since then has changed by mind and I will continue to oppose the UK's retention of nuclear weapons."

2009 - Signed EDM 1883 calling for Trident to be included in the Defence Review. Signed EDM 660 calling for a delay in the Initial Gate of Trident Replacement.

14 March 2007 - voted against the Government motion which called for the renewal of Trident

November 2005 - Replied to survey saying "The defence select committee are enquiring into the futre of Trident at present it would be inappropriate to comment at present"

June 2005 - Replied to a survey saying he was opposed to replacing Trident and said - "I do not think that it is in the interest of the UK to replace Trident or have any nuclear weapons. The main threat to our country is through international terrorism and Trident is a waste of money and is not a deterrent"

2005/06 - Member of the House of Commons Defence Select Committee which conducted enquiries into Trident Replacement.

2005/06 - Signed EDM 2702 calling for a Green (consultation) paper and a free vote. Also signed EDM 892 and 1802 calling for a debate.
