Commenting on the Government's announcement that an additional £16.5 billion will be spent on defence, Andrew Allison, Head of Campaigns of The Freedom Association, said:
"Defence of the realm must be any Government's number one priority, and this £16.5 billion boost to military spending is very welcome news.
"One of our 'Eight Principles of a Free Society' is strong national defences, and it is pleasing that the Prime Minister realises that as we live in a hostile world it is imperative that we defend our country properly.
"This announcement will be seen across the world that the UK is still a major player and a reliable NATO ally."
