“Capability is being lost as are people’s livelihoods” – Jim Murphy

Jim Murphy MP, Labour’s Shadow Defence Secretary, commenting on reports that over 4,000 personnel are set to be sacked from the Armed Forces said:

“We are concerned about the human and military impact of these job losses. Capability is being lost as are people’s livelihoods.

“The Government has focused on structures not purpose. Savings have to be made but Ministers must do much more to explain our future ability to project force around the world as well as how they intend to support the thousands being sacked.

“The Government are not reforming but dithering. We have no final decisions on the future of basing or regiments and the continued uncertainty is deeply debilitating.”
