Scottish National Party leader Nicola Sturgeon has criticised a £500 million investment in the home of the UK's nuclear deterrent as "Tory arrogance of the worst kind".
Ms Sturgeon said it was wrong of Chancellor George Osborne to pre-empt the outcome of a vote on the renewal of the Trident nuclear deterrent, which is due to be decided by MPs next year.
The SNP leader said that while she wanted to see Faslane have a strong future as a conventional naval yard, the money should be invested in health and education and used to reverse "cruel" welfare cuts.

The head of Police Scotland Sir Stephen House has announced he will step down in three months time.
It comes after a number of high profile incidents in which the force were criticised for their handling.
One such case was that of John Yuill and Lamara Bell, who lay undiscovered for three days after a car crash in July.
Miss Bell was said to still be alive when help finally came but she died later in hospital. Mr Yuill died at the scene.
It was later revealed an experienced official had failed to log a call from a member of the public who had spotted the crash.
Around 15 people have been treated by medical teams at the East Sands Leisure Centre after a suspected chemical leak.
Firefighters wearing hazmat suit have been seen going in and out of the centre in St Andrews following the incident, which was reported at around 1pm.
A Scottish Ambulance Service spokesman said: "We are responding with multiple ambulances and a special operations team to reports of people showing symptoms of exposure to a chemical leak."
The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service, which has six crews and a decontamination team at the scene, said about 15 people had been treated for "minor breathing irritation".
New Scottish Labour leader Kezia Dugdale is to pledge a "fresh start" to the relationship between the party and business leaders, encouraging investment in education and skills.
Meeting with leading industry figures in Glasgow today, Ms Dugdale is expected to say that tackling inequality in schools is the key to securing Scotland's economic future.
This can be done, she will add, by giving students from all backgrounds an equal chance to compete for vital jobs in the finance, IT, science, engineering and low carbon technology sectors.
For too many kids in Scotland today how much money their parents earn determines their ability to get on in life, rather than their potential, work rate and ambition.
That's not just holding young people back, it's bad for business and Scotland's economy. Investing in education and skills today will pay dividends in the decades to come.
