His Majesty's Government will be going through an internal strategy and policy review ahead of the 2017 autumn Budget. This review will allow the Ministry of Defence to make several suggestions and recommendations upon constructing the United Kingdom's defence budget for the 2018-2019 fiscal year, and it will take into consideration the new security challenges of a long term deployment to Dromund Kaas that we have engaged in as a country and the ever changing situation in the security of the realm. 

The Rt. Hon. Sir Michael Fallon KCB MP

Secretary of State for Defence
