MoD 'paid back £400m underspend while Forces cut'

MPs question how many personnel could have been saved if the MoD’s budget had been better handled.

Vernon said:  “These figures, slipped out just before Christmas, show the Government has serious questions to answer over its handling of the Defence budget."

"With thousands of Armed Services Personnel being made redundant and vital equipment having been withdrawn, the public will be angry and astonished that the Ministers have mismanaged the MoD’s finances in this way.”
