‘Defence cuts could undermine Nato and Special Relationship’ – Telegraph

A report from the Conservative-led Commons Defence Committee is the latest warning against more defence cuts in the Spending Review for 2015/16, which is being drawn up in Whitehall.

George Osborne, the Chancellor, is seeking to trim public spending by £10 billion, and Treasury officials are considering additional reductions in the defence budget, on top of the current round of cuts.

Those cuts will see the Armed Forces lose 30,000 and leave Britain without a working aircraft carrier for much of this decade. It was revealed this week that restructuring will also leave the Desert Rats, the celebrated tank unit, without any tanks.
