Retired Admiral Warns Against Further Defence Cuts

Posted on March 12, 2018

It is expected that the public finances will be in better shape than forecast last year, with borrowing about £10bn below the expected level. That could give the Chancellor some increased headroom on spending though it has been made clear that the Spring Statement will not focus on new commitments. Rear Admiral Burton said that he understood the needs of the NHS and the police, for example, had to be balanced by the government and that after the financial crisis the Ministry of Defence had to become more efficient and show it could spend money wisely – which it had done.
