Well, they're hardly likely to say "No, we'll never use them", are they? They'd find it difficult to explain why we bother keeping them, at great expense to the taxpayer.

Don't get me wrong, I'm no supporter of nuclear weapons (did you know that the International Court of Justice concluded in 1996 that the threat or use of nuclear weapons would generally be contrary to the rules of international law applicable in armed conflict?), but I find it best to take any official statement about military goings-on with a very large pinch of salt.
