Defence Secretary Michael Fallon has told the House of Commons: 'We will always defend the right of the Falkland Islanders'. He said he had approved the "return of military support helicopters" with two Chinooks operational next year to allow "24/7 tactical mobility".
"We will be renewing the ground-based air defence system when Rapier comes out of service around the end of the decade. We will also maintain our commitment to provide a Falkland Islands patrol vessel," he added.
