Defence has some protection in the 2015/16 review, to be unveiled on June 26. It will be guaranteed a 1% increase in equipment budgets from 2015.

- 2010 budget cuts mean the Army is already being reduced from 102,000 to 82,000.
- 2,860 personnel across all three services were made redundant in September 2011.
- A further 3,760 went in a second tranche last June.
