Defence Philip Hammond to reveal bases for British soldiers

The fate of two military bases in Wales is expected to become more clear after an announcement by Defence Secretary Philip Hammond later on Tuesday.

There is uncertainty over the future of Cawdor Barracks in Pembrokeshire, which houses 14th Signal Regiment, who are experts in electronic warfare.

But there are hopes that St Athan in the Vale of Glamorgan could become home to more troops.

On Good Morning Wales Gareth Lewis spoke to Rear Admiral Chris Parry, a former Nato commander and former director general at the Ministry of Defence.
