SBAC - UK defence industry comment on UKNDA report on defence funding


Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
SBAC
: 03 March, 2009  (Company News)
Commenting on the UK National Defence Association report on Armed Forces
funding Ian Godden, Chief Executive of the SBAC - the UK's aerospace,
defence and security trade association - said 'The defence industry's view
is very similar to that of Tony Edwards' research and highlights the need
for an urgent Strategic Defence Review. However, we also recognise the need
to put the case to the nation to explain why such a review and an increased
defence budget are necessary.
'Our research shows that the public instinctively knows that something is
wrong but that they don't have the facts to understand the implications for
Britain's future security and foreign policy that would result from defence
underinvestment or over-reliance on our allies to defend our nation's vital
interests.'
