LUFF MADE DEFENCE MINISTER

Rt Hon Dr Liam Fox MP, Secretary of Sate for Defence, yesterday confirmed Peter Luff’s ministerial position and responsibilities at the Ministry of Defence.
Peter is now Minister for Defence Equipment, Support and Technology.

He will be responsible for the equipment cycle, including investment decisions, science and technology and industrial strategy as well as other non-equipment issues such as IT and estates.

Commenting, Peter said,

“This role is an important one at any time, but with our armed forces deeply engaged in Afghanistan and with a strategic defence and security review taking place at a time of serious financial challenges, I am all the more sensitive to the issues involved.

“I also want to reassure my Mid Worcestershire constituents that my work as a constituency MP, championing their concerns, will remain of the highest importance.”
