Jim Murphy MP, Labour’s Shadow Defence Secretary, commenting on today’s article in The Times on the cost of the scrapping equipment in the Government’s defence review, said: 

“This staggering figure shows that the defence review was a shambolic and rushed process. It comes on top of news of the harmful way in which redundancies of trainees pilots has been handled.  The Tory-led Government must explain their actions. 

“The Conservative-led Government has broken their promise to enshrine the Military Covenant in law and I urge them to think again.”
