BUSINESS QUESTION – TRIDENT SUCCESSOR DEBATE – 3 March 2016

Dr Julian Lewis: If the Government persist with their intention of delaying the vote on Trident renewal until after the Labour party conference, it will become harder for pro-defence and pro-Trident Labour MPs to vote in favour of renewal. May we please have the date on which the debate and vote will take place, especially if more time will be made available by extending the length of the Session?

[The Leader of the House of Commons (Chris Grayling): I know about my right hon. Friend’s concerns over the timing of the debate. I will make sure that his views are fed into the discussions about when the debate should happen.]
