Defence cuts dominate Spending Challenge

Apparently public concerns about the cost of Trident have fuelled major lobbying of the Treasury via its Spending Challenge consultation. An analysis of submissions found that those tagged under ‘Defence’ have been dominated by those seeking spending cuts on nuclear weapons.

At both the stage of submitting ideas and the second stage of voting on them, Trident has dominated in the area of Defence. Of 1926 original submissions tagged with the Defence label, over 600 call for spending on Trident to be cut – with the overwhelming majority wanting the system to be cut altogether.
