Military wants ‘safe space away from public gaze’ to come up with policy, including Trident
Apr 6, 2016

Some commentators suggest replacing Britain’s ageing nuclear deterrent could cost upwards of £160 billion (US$227 billion).

The Ministry of Defence (MoD) said it hasn’t made its own full forecast and said in a statement: “The government needs a safe space away from the public gaze to allow it to consider policy options for delivering the deterrent in the most cost-effective way, unfettered from public comment about the affordability of particular policy options.”
