Mid Worcestershire MP Peter Luff is the new minister responsible for defence equipment.

The former chairman of the business select committee, who is in charge of a £15bn budget, will be responsible for delivering new equipment.

The Conservative MP said he was delighted to have been given the role, but warned he would face tough choices as cuts in public spending are made.

He will report directly to Defence Secretary Liam Fox.
