LABOUR TO SQUANDER BILLIONS ON TRIDENT

Patricia Gibson MP slammed the hypocrisy of Sir Keir Starmer's commitment to squandering billions of pounds on nuclear weapons - after claiming there is no money to improve the NHS, help households with the cost of living, or invest in our green energy future.


Patricia Gibson MP said:


"Westminster has already wasted billions of pounds of taxpayer's money on nuclear weapons.


"It’s grotesque that Sir Keir Starmer is prepared to throw billions more down the drain when Labour claims there’s no money to improve our NHS, help families with the cost of living, or invest in our green energy future.


"Moreover, the Ministry of Defence budget continues to be eaten away by a weapon’s system which undermines Scotland and the UK's security resilience.


"With both the Tories and Labour focused on the wrong priorities, it is only the SNP standing up for Scotland's interests and values."
