HC Deb 18 June 1993 vol 226 c757W
Mr. Flynn

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what are the factors that will bear upon his Department's decision as to the number of nuclear warheads that will be deployed on the Trident submarines.

Mr. Aitken

We will deploy on Trident only the minimum number of warheads we judge necessary to provide effective deterrence, presenting any potential aggressor with the prospect of unacceptable damage.
