Philip Hammond has said that Nick Clegg does not view defence as an important area.
In an interview with the Daily Telegraph, the Secretary of State for Defence, said:
I am a Conservative. The kind of Conservatism I was brought up on says that the first priority of the government is defending the country and maintaining law and order.
Those are the two top priorities for me.
We’ve got no Lib Dems, because, apparently, Nick Clegg doesn’t regard defence as an important area.
