No Ministers attended the commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the Continuous at Sea Deterrent held at HM Naval Base Clyde on 5 July. This event, held at the home of the deterrent, was designed to focus on the families and personnel of the deterrent enterprise. The principal national commemorative event took place on 3 May in Westminster Abbey and was attended by the Rt Hon Penny Mordaunt MP, the then Secretary of State for Defence, and the Rt Hon Liam Fox MP, the then Secretary of State for International Trade. I also had the pleasure of attending.
