No Labour U-turn on deterrent.
Byline: RICHARD WHEELER
LABOUR will not reverse their decision to keep Britain's Trident nuclear deterrent.
Shadow Defence Secretary Nia Griffith said the party supported the nuclear deterrent.
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn voted against Trident renewal in July 2016.
The Commons vote saw MPs back the replacement of the existing submarine fleet carrying the missiles with four new Successor submarines.
Griffith said: "Having a nuclear deterrent is a very important part of our defence policy."
Asked about previous remarks in which she questioned the need for Trident, she added: "I think if you look at the world today it's a more uncertain place than it's ever been."
