Defence IQ brings you the full and unedited version of our interview with Peter Luff, Minister for Defence Equipment, Support and Technology. At the heart of this discussion lies the budget shortfall that still stands before the MoD. He promises the British people that the MoD will 'make it work' - without approaching the Treasury for additional funding (a promise which is called into question by recent statements to the press). He goes on to address potential cuts to the Chinook fleet, and cuts that have already gone forward: to Harrier, Nimrod and to naval carriers. We go on to discuss the ways in which defence industry in the UK will be affected by cuts, and the publishing of new MoD policy which will regulate business and defence investment in the UK.
