Jeremy Corbyn said his views are well known on nuclear weapons in response to criticism that he had "undermined" party policy by saying he would never launch a nuclear strike if he was prime minister.
Maria Eagle said the comments were "not helpful" and "undermined" party policy.
Responding to Eagle's comments, Mr Corbyn told reporters: "We will be having a discussion and a debate about nuclear weapons.
"We are going to have discussion and a debate about how we fulfil our obligations under the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and we will go forward from there.
"There's no decision required until probably next summer on this. I hold a view which is well known on nuclear weapons and it is a view which I have held all my life."
