Commenting on contradictory remarks from Labour Cabinet ministers over Trident replacement, Edward Davey said:

"Labour is already falling apart over Trident.

"One day the Defence Secretary says it is "ridiculous" to look at cheaper alternatives to renewing the current system, the next day the Welsh Secretary says affordability should be on the agenda.

"There is growing support in the military, and it would seem in corners of the other parties, for alternatives to spending £100bn on a Cold War era nuclear weapons system."
