The Ministry of Defence has announced it will establish a new UK chemical weapons defence centre in the wake of the nerve agent attack on the Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter, Yulia. 

 

The government is planning to spend £48 million setting up the centre.

Gavin Williamson, Defence Secretary confirmed the news and said, “In the face of intensifying threats, we must prioritise investment in military capabilities. We cannot sit back and let events overtake us. We have to be the ones who determine our future.”
