CND-slams-insulting-plans-to-pay-out-285m on Trident

Friday 13th March 2015

CON-DEM plans to splash £285 million on Trident were slammed by CND yesterday as “an insult to those suffering from £300m cuts to legal aid.”

The Ministry of Defence announced on Wednesday it would pay BAE Systems £257m for design work on new nuclear-armed submarines, while Babcock and Rolls-Royce would receive £22m and £6m respectively for work on the submarines’ nuclear reactors.

But only on Tuesday the Commons justice committee warned that a third of domestic violence victims would be denied legal aid following huge spending cuts.

CND general secretary Kate Hudson described the splurge as a “stark barometer” of the government’s priorities.

“It’s boom time for the makers of nuclear weapons — while some of the most vulnerable in our society are left suffering by the wayside.

“David Cameron is content to spend billions in order to strut on the world stage with a cold-war weapon and an inflated sense of importance while forcing those who are most in need to pay for it.”
