Defence Spending

Today the Prime Minister calls on our NATO allies to invest more in defence, helping to protect us all from the evolving threats that we face in the decade ahead.

  • The NATO Alliance keeps our people safe every day, but over the next ten years the threats around us are only going to grow. 
  • That is why, building on the Integrated Review and the biggest increase to UK defence spending since the Cold War, we need all our allies to dig deep to restore deterrence and ensure defence in the decade ahead. Britain has met the 2 per cent NATO target every year and remain the leading defence spender in Europe.
  • Britain's investment in defence will create and sustain almost 400,000 high paying skilled jobs across the country, and keep our people safe.
