Written Answers — Defence: Trident Submarines (8 Feb 2012)

Peter Luff: I refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave on 30 January 2012, Official Report, column 424W, to the hon. Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn), the hon. Member for Plymouth, Moor View (Alison Seabeck) and my hon. Friend the Member for Plymouth, Sutton and Devonport (Oliver Colvile).

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Trident (19 Dec 2011)

Peter Luff: I believe that, notwithstanding the views of the hon. Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn), no programme is subject to greater scrutiny in the House than the nuclear deterrent. That is one of the reasons for the accuracy of our costings. Let me assure my hon. Friend that the primary responsibility for our nation is the security of the country, that the nuclear deterrent is the ultimate...

Trident (7 Dec 2011)

Peter Luff: ...end of “Casablanca”, but the number of usual suspects seems to have expanded today to a rather larger number than I had expected. I had imagined that only the hon. Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn) and my hon. Friend the Member for New Forest East (Dr Lewis) would be in Westminster Hall today, but I welcome the larger group of actors. I am delighted to be in Westminster Hall...

Ministry of Defence (Procurement) — [Mr Jim Hood in the Chair] (19 Oct 2011)

Peter Luff: ...the initial acquisition. We also need to be clear about how we invest in technology to sustain the skills of the defence industry, which is something that the hon. Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn) raised. That was about the only thing that I agreed with in his speech. The scale of what we spend is huge; the total spend for the whole range of procurements in the financial year...

Trident (1 Mar 2011)

Peter Luff: ...dealing with the scrutiny of the successor systems to our current nuclear deterrent, and for the avoidance of any doubt—I answer also the points raised by the hon. Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn)—let me be clear about the Government’s policy on the nuclear deterrent. The first duty of any Government is to ensure the security of the people. The nuclear deterrent provides...

Trident (1 Mar 2011)

Peter Luff: ...long-lead items will depend on the final initial gate approval, but it is likely to amount to around £500 million, some way short of the £1 billion that the hon. Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn) has cited in the past. There is nothing unusual in that; it is normal practice for most large procurement programmes.

Millennium Review Summit (26 May 2005)

Peter Luff: I am delighted to follow the hon. Member for Islington, North (Jeremy Corbyn). Again, and rather to my surprise, I find myself largely in agreement with him. However, for reasons that he will understand, I am glad to say that I did not agree with everything that he said. Why are we debating a subject that seems to command such wide general consensus? First, I am suspicious of consensus. When...

Foreign Affairs and Defence (18 May 2005)

Peter Luff: ...past quarter of a century the story of development issues has been one of two steps forward, one step back—to be optimistic about things. I disagree with the hon. Member for Islington, North (Jeremy Corbyn), who said that international issues had dominated the election and had been prevalent in his campaign. Apart from Iraq, I heard very little about development issues. That is probably...
