- No

Question 2. The Scottish Parlaiment should call on the UK government to cease the deployment of Trident

- No

Question 3. The Scottish Parliament should support a Nuclear Weapons Convention (a global ban on nuclear weapons).

"I would welcome multilateral nuclear disarmament and international efforts to progress and achieve this, although I am sceptical of the likelihood of this being achieved. I support international negotiations to reduce the number of nuclear missiles and prevent their spread to other nations."


Question 4. Are you for or against the construction of new nuclear power stations in Scotland ?

"I am for the construction of new stations on existing sites as a contribution to meeting our climate change targets and ensuring that we have a secure and stable supply in Scotland and the rest of the UK".
