Shadow Defence Secretary Bob Ainsworth MP responding to Armed Forces minister Nick Harvey’s comments that delaying a decision on Trident was politically motivated, said:

“This is a completely immature way to decide our future defence and security policy. The Government must make those decisions in the best interests of our country, not delay them just to score political points. Putting off difficult decisions shows just how weak this coalition is. 

“The Liberal Democrats needs to grow up and start acting like a responsible governing party.”
