Our readiness to deter will be increased through investment in the resilience of the UK’s munitions infrastructure, including storage facilities and stockpiles. The £1.95 billion for resilience and readiness will be spent on measures to address gaps in our capabilities. We are transforming the Department’s workforce model to attract and retain the talent needed. Our Regular and Reserve Armed Forces are fully committed to defending our country and its allies.
