Defending our country: the nuclear deterrent

This week the government announced that £2 billion of defence contracts have been awarded to support the third phase of our submarine nuclear deterrent programme – ensuring the UK remains at the vanguard of global security while supporting tens of thousands of high-skilled jobs.

  • Our Dreadnought Class of submarines will be crucial to maintaining and safeguarding our national security, with the nuclear deterrent protecting UK citizens from the most extreme threats every day.
  • That is why the government has announced that over £2 billion of defence contracts have been awarded to begin the third major phase of the future submarine nuclear deterrent programme, building the largest submarines in Royal Navy history and supporting around 30,000 jobs across the UK.
  • This investment will boost a key British industry for decades to come, protecting our national security and supporting high-skilled jobs.
