LONDON - Britain's defense secretary on Monday said an extra 350 million pounds ($562 million) would be spent developing next generation nuclear submarines, brushing aside Scottish nationalist threats to force the country's submarine base out of Scotland.

Philip Hammond visited the site in Scotland where Britain's submarine-based Trident nuclear deterrent is housed and challenged the Scottish National Party (SNP), which leads Scotland's devolved government, to explain the impact of forcing the base to relocate elsewhere on Scotland's economy.

The SNP has promised to remove the nuclear submarines from Scotland should it win a referendum on independence in 2014, though opinion polls currently show a majority of Scots would not vote to break away from England.
