Armed Forces: Arms and Hardware

Volume 694: debated on Thursday 26 July 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they will draw up long-term plans to reduce United Kingdom total spending on arms and military hardware, to bring this spending closer to the levels found in the recent budgets of Italy and Germany. [HL4787]

Her Majesty’s Government make funds available for defence based on the capabilities needed by the UK’s Armed Forces now and in the future, not on comparisons with other nations.
