AWPC: Memorandum to Defence Select Committee, 2006

In advance of the parliamentary vote on the replacement of Trident, the House of Commons Defence Committee initiated a series of inquiries into the future of the UK's "strategic deterrent".
Their second inquiry focused on "the Manufacturing and Skills Base". AWPC submitted evidence relevant to the committee's examination of "the Government's investment programme at the Atomic Weapons Establishment, Aldermaston", including information about private companies and contractors already involved in the building programme at AWE Aldermaston, and the recruitment of new staff.
