Francis Tuse addresses the Unite Defence Conference
At a conference for Unite members who work in the defence industry, industry analyst Francis Tusa. He raised the issue of how the UK government are increasingly spending more money off-shore, in particular in the USA where the defence spend is set to increase from 12% at the moment to over 25% in the next few years. This spend overseas will seriously undermine UK jobs, skills and communities. In addition it could have a serious negative impact on the UK's defence sovereignty.
