Trident Missiles

Volume 479: debated on Monday 29 September 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many Trident warheads were operationally available at the latest date for which figures are available; and when that number fell below 160. (224250)

[holding answer 17 September 2008]: The UK has fewer than 160 operationally available Trident warheads. I refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave on 15 November 2007, Official Report, column 366W. I am withholding further information as its release would, or would be likely to, prejudice national security.
