Defence cuts ‘ letting down veterans’
Cuts to the UK’s military budget are having an impact on Britain’s influence in the world – and are letting down our veterans.
Figures show that the defence budget has fallen by almost 20% in the last eight years, to £35 billion.
The defence secretary Gavin Williamson has called for more defence spending.
He’s announced an extra £20 million for a helpline to support troops suffering from mental health problems.
