Kevan Jones MP, Labour’s Shadow Armed Forces Minister, responding to David Cameron’s comments this afternoon on Armed Forces spending, said:

“There will be confusion and concern in the Armed Forces community.

“Past promises, like so many of our brave personnel, now seem redundant.

“Our Armed Forces deserve better than posturing from a Prime Minister who came to power promising a bigger Army but has cut capabilities and manpower.

“Tough decisions are necessary in defence but the Government’s plans are rushed and flawed.”
