Cameron’s new step to keep Britain secure from terrorism

David Cameron is going to take new step to keep his country safe. He decides that Britain’s spies, police and Armed Forces are to be given an extra £15billion to fight terrorists, it was revealed yesterday.

David Cameron insisted the UK must prepare against new threats from Islamic State following the Paris massacres.

New funding for counter-terrorism and the Armed Forces was unveiled ahead of today’s security and defence reviews and Wednesday’s Autumn Statement. Chancellor George Osborne yesterday announced a £3.4billion, 30 per cent, increase in counter-terrorism funding up to 2020, taking total spending to £15.1billion.

The Prime Minister said: “Our priorities are to deter state-based threats, tackle terrorism, remain a world leader in cyber-security and ensure we have the capability to respond rapidly to crises as they emerge.”
