Should Trident be delayed?
Britain remains committed to replacing its nuclear weapons but the timetable for financing the scheme could change as a result of a value for money review. Is Trident needed?
Armed Forces Minister Nick Harvey said: "There is no suggestion that I am aware of either delaying any decision or indeed of delaying the procurement."
But he added: "The value for money study which is taking place at the moment - and which has yet to make a decision - may well look at the expenditure profile - the order, if you like, in which the programme takes different parts of the work."
But Labour warned any delays could put Britain's continuous deterrent at risk.
Does Britain need Trident? Should the decision be delayed? Are there any alternatives to Trident? Should Britain's defence budget be cut? What would a delay mean for the defence industry?
