John Healey – 2020 Comments on Report in Carrier Strike

The comments made by John Healey, the Shadow Defence Secretary, on 13 November 2020.

The PAC points to gaps in Britain’s defences caused directly by the Ministry of Defence’s failure to plan, fund and commission the systems and equipment that these new carriers need to be fully deployed.

The Carrier strike capability is central to our national defence but it is being undermined by the Government’s incompetence.

The Defence Secretary must get a grip of these problems.
