Trident and the US-UK Mutual Defence Agreement Replacing Trident depends on the UK renewing a secretive nuclear sharing treaty with the US – the US-UK Mutual Defence Agreement (MDA). It’s happening this year but the Government won’t offer a debate or vote to MPs. David Cameron secretly agreed to renew it back in July and it will be deemed ratified on 20th November. However, a number of backbench MPs have forced a discussion in Parliament and are demanding the treaty is not ratified. Challenging the treaty is vital to opposing Trident replacement – which will be decided after the election.
