Commons Defence Committee Urges Rise In Defence Spending

Posted on June 18, 2018

In the committee’s report, called Beyond 2 Per Cent, MPs said that failure to finance the military on a sustainable basis made it “very difficult” to have a long-term defence strategy. Increased spending was the “only solution” at a time when the UK faced a renewed threat from Russia and increasing challenges from terrorism, extremism and cyber-warfare, the MPs said. The report said defence spending was “far too low” and the government “needs to apply the resources that are necessary to keep this country safe”.
