Defence Newsletter Easter 2018

As you will be aware Defence policy is one of my Parliamentary responsibilities. I remain on both the House of Commons Defence Select Committee (HCDC) and the NATO Parliamentary Assembly. I am the Chair of the Labour Party Backbench Defence Group and Chair the RAF and the Reserves and Cadet Forces All Party Groups. The eye of the UK Defence community is currently focused sharply on the UK’s defence budget, our foreign policy and defence strategy to face old and new strategic threats. The possible weakening of our security links with Europe following Brexit is a further concern. The UK’s main outlet for Defence since the Second World War has been NATO. With our Defence Budget under strain, and the US administration’s confusing messages and our departure from the EU this update will, I hope, help to clarify the problems we face. Calls for an increase in defence funding has taken on a greater urgency following the chemical attack in Salisbury.
