UK defence spending to rise as dangers increase – PM

The UK will increase its defence spending to 2.5 percent of GDP by the end of the decade, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said.

It is expected to mean an extra ?55bn by 2030, and could mean investments in future air combat capabilities for a “more dangerous” world, the PM said.

The defence secretary had reportedly called for a faster timescale.
