Continuing the Trident Debate

On Tuesday, 18 March, IISS hosted the event Continuing the Trident Debate: Role, Alternatives and Opportunity Cost. 

Three members of the Top Level Group, Sir Nick Harvey MP,  Admiral Lord West of Spithead, Baroness Williams of Crosby discussed together with Dr Julian Lewis MP the  implications and options that the UK will have to address leading up to the 2016 ‘Main Gate’ decision.


Following the July 2013 publication of the Trident Alternatives Review, and ahead of the May 2015 general election, this was a timely point to address salient questions which remain to be fully aired, including but not limited to the role, system options, deterrence postures and opportunity costs.
