The House of Commons had an historic vote on the future of Britain's nuclear deterrent yesterday (July 18).

MPs voted 472 to 117 in favour of replacing four nuclear-warhead carrying submarines.

It as one of the hugely controversial topics at the centre of divisions in the Labour party, and at a time of huge austerity impacting on incomes and public services across the country, the decision weighs in at costing the UK tax payer at least £31 to build and £180 billion to run for their lifetime. To put the cost in context, that's 23 per cent of our total annual public expenditure of around £700 billion.

We will now be replacing the old Vanguard submarines with new Successor models to carry our 255-strong arsenal of nuclear warheads, and the specific total cost is still not known.

Conservatives voted overwhelmingly with the party line, with 322 for and only four abstentions and one against.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn offered members a free vote - 140 members voted for, with 47 against and 41 abstaining or absent.
