Defence review: Are the plans fair?
David Cameron has confirmed defence spending is to be cut by 8% in real terms over four years, as he unveiled the first strategic defence review in 12 years. What is your first reaction?
He denied it was simply a "cost saving exercise" as he opened his statement and said there would be no cuts to support for troops in Afghanistan.
He confirmed HMS Ark Royal will be decommissioned four years early and the UK's Harrier jump jets will be axed.
Did you listen to David Cameron's announcement? Are there any alternatives to cuts? Which cuts do you agree or disagree with?
