    UK government under pressure to increase defense budget to 3% of GDP

    The defense committee repeated its call for the Government to raise defense spending from the NATO minimum of 2% of GDP to 3% – around £60 billion a year

The Commons Defense Committee said without further investment, UK forces would struggle to maintain “interoperability” with the US military, diminishing their usefulness as allies.
