Westminster Hall debate on the future shape of the Armed Forces

I was really pleased to call a debate in Parliament yesterday on the future shape of the Armed Forces. You can watch the video below.

I wanted to make the point that despite financial constraints we do need a large, well resourced Armed Forces to face down the many threat that our county faces and that our finest asset is our people - our service men and women. I mentioned also that we will have several new Army units coming to Aldershot over the next couple of years as part of a new Strike Brigade - which is great news for the Garrison.
