Trident and the Scottish Referendum

British Pugwash discussion meeting

The outcome of the Scottish referendum threatened to cause serious problems for the UK’s nuclear weapons and the Trident replacement programme. With the Scottish people having voted against independence, what now for the future of the UK’s nuclear arsenal? This question was debated in a detailed discussion between Professor William Walker (University of St. Andrews) and Professor Malcolm Chalmers (RUSI), chaired by Dr Nick Ritchie (University of York and British Pugwash).
