December 2006 - In response to a constituent, he said:
""I think that the lives of the Vanguard submarines, and the missiles they carry, should be extended and that the Government should start looking noew at possible replacements .... It's important to remember that the decision over whether or not we actually go ahead and replace our nuclear submarines does not need to be taken until around 2014. I think it's important that plenty of time be made available for a full public and Parliamentary debate to take place before any decision is taken."
