12 Serious debate continued over 2006, for example in the publications of the Royal United Services Institute13 and House of Commons Defence Committee hearings on ‘The Future of the UK’s Strategic Nuclear Deterrent: The Strategic Context’ in March 2006 and ‘The Future of the UK’s Strategic Nuclear Deterrent: The Manufacturing and Skills Base’ in November 2006. 17 An exchange between MP Mike Gapes and Defence Secretary Geoff Hoon encapsulated MoD’s less than full engagement: Mike Gapes: You do not know what the options [for Trident replacement] are?
The paper announced that ‘Decisions on whether to replace Trident are not needed this Parliament but are likely to be required in the next one. 3 This chapter explores the politics of the decision to initiate the Trident replacement process in 2006 and the parliamentary vote to authorise the initial phase the following year. It unpacks the political, operational and technical issues that have shaped the debate and the politics of delay leading up to the October 2010 Strategic Defence and Security Review (SDSR).
