Starmer: Nuclear deterrent is bedrock of defence policy

Sir Keir Starmer has outlined the importance of the UK’s nuclear deterrent in his plan for national security, aiming to increase defence spending to 2.5% of GDP.

The commitment aligns with Chancellor Jeremy Hunt’s, signalling a dramatic shift from the policies of his predecessor, Jeremy Corbyn.

Labour hopes to direct UK defence investment to British business, and increase jobs and skills in defence.
