Was very pleased to see introduction of tax breaks for soldiers serving abroad announced yesterday. In an article in The Times today about it it mentions that at the same time as freeing up Â£60-Â£70m for this scheme the treasury has told the MoD it HAS to cut the procurement program for type 45 destroyers AND one other major project. Have they gone for a cheap soft option to make people feel good whilst dramatically b*ggering up future operational capability in the background? Could someone find link from the paper please. Also is this old news about the procurement programmes?
