Tim Farron on Defence Review: We need more flexible forces and better co-ordination with Europe

by Steve Beasant on 24 November, 2015

The following article was published yesterday on the Liberal Democrat Voice Website.

tim conf1Tim Farron has been commenting on the Strategic Defence Review. He said:

“Only this government could create a ‘rapid reaction force’ and will take 10 years to react.

“The Government’s Strategic Defence and Security Review (SDSR) has some good points, especially the new maritime patrol boats and extra frigates.

“The world is more dangerous and uncertain since the last SDSR and that is why we need more flexible forces and greater coordination with allies in Europe. For all the Prime Minister’s bluster, that piece of the jigsaw is sadly missing.”
