Tim Hare submitted evidence to the Trident Commission, entitled ‘The US nuclear guarantee, and possible future threats’, answering the following scenarios and questions:
1. Possible future credible threats (capability and intention) to UK and allies that would not sufficiently involve the US, and would not be deterrable by other means
2. Probability that a US nuclear guarantee can be relied upon into the foreseeable future
3. The ethics of giving up a UK deterrent and relying upon the US to shoulder the burden (as well as the impact upon the Alliance, etc)
