Sir Bill Cash MP – defence spending

Stone MP, Sir Bill Cash is completely behind the parliamentary debate Motion today on defence spending stating ‘That this House believes that defence spending should be set to a minimum of two per cent of GDP in accordance with the UK’s NATO commitment’ but on this occasion, he is at the funeral of Doug Lakey, who was awarded the military medal and who was with Bill Cash’s father, Captain Cash Paul – who earned the Military Cross – on the day he was killed in July 1944 in Normandy while fighting the SS Panzer.

Sir Bill is therefore unable to attend the parliamentary debate today (Thursday 12th March) but strongly believes that defence spending should be set to a minimum of two per cent of GDP.
