Menzies Campbell responds to separation of defence element from Security Review

by Steve Beasant on 23 January, 2018

Commenting on news that the defence element of the National Security Capability Review will be separated out, Liberal Democrat Defence spokesperson Menzies Campbell said:

“This separation was both necessary and inevitable. The pressure on the government from all sides and all parties on the need to protect and enhance the defence budget was overwhelming.

“What it does mean is that when the national security review appears we will only have half the picture.”
