Scottish Labour votes to ditch Trident nuclear weapons system
Party in Scotland now holds different position to wider UK party
A MOTION to scrap Trident has been overwhelmingly passed at the Scottish Labour Party Conference in Perth.
Just over 70 per cent of delegates voted in favour of the motion which called for monies saved by ending the nuclear system to be used to support communities based in the defence sector.
Activists at the conference described the Trident debate as "very significant".
