DEFENCE – BBC MONITORING SERVICE – 10 July 2017

Dr Julian Lewis: Will the Government consider reinstating ring-fenced funding for the BBC Monitoring Service, given that its absence is leading to the closure of Caversham Park and a considerable reduction in the service’s defensive potential?

[The Minister of State, Ministry of Defence (Mark Lancaster): I am more than happy to look at the matter for my right hon. Friend.]
