Replied to survey in 2011 election:

"As a member of the SNP I am firmly opposed to nuclear power as an expensive and dangerous energy choice. The SNP Government has instead invested in alternative energy sources including wind, wave and tidal power and are working hard to ensure that there will be no replacement of Scotland's aging nuclear power stations when the existing ones are decommissioned.

"We are also firmly opposed to nuclear weapons and our MPs will vote against the replacement of Trident.

"The SNP firmly believes that nuclear weapons have no place in a modern Scotland .   We have consistently demanded the cancellation of the new generation of Trident missiles and their £100bn pound price tag.

"A majority of Scottish MSPs and MPs are against Trident, as are the Scottish public. Without a strong team of SNP MPs Scotland's priorities can be ignored. The London parties want to cut spending on vital local services. At the same time they are willing to waste £ 100 billion on new nuclear missiles and submarines.

"We believe nuclear is the wrong choice."
