Menzies Campbell responds to nuclear submarine drugs scandal

by Steve Beasant on 28 October, 2017

Responding to the news that nine service personnel on a nuclear submarine have been discharged from the Royal Navy after testing positive for drugs, Liberal Democrat Defence Spokesperson Sir Menzies Campbell said:

“We expect high standards from all our armed forces.

“But there is a unique responsibility on those who man our nuclear submarines.

“The UK’s nuclear deterrent depends on credibility. Anything which undermines that is unacceptable.”
