Response to joint letter from Royal Navy Admirals “ November 10th 2010
The Falkland Islands Government is satisfied by and grateful for the levels of defence on the Islands, which Her Majesty™s Government has assured us are adequate to maintain an effective deterrent.
There are no direct defence cuts relating to the Falkland Islands. Members of the Legislative Assembly are content with the reassurances that they have been given by Her Majesty™s Government that the Strategic Defence Spending Review does not in any way change the UK™s ability to maintain the deterrent in the Islands.
