By 2018 the UK had spent £1.2bn on Galileo, Europe’s answer to the US GPS system. We have learnt that the UK Government now intends to build its own system as we are no longer part of the project due to Brexit.
This is expected to cost £3bn to £5bn. I wanted to know where this money was coming from and when the UK expect this project to be online.
I believe it is important that we should work with our neighbours and allies when it comes to defence. Not only is there strength in numbers but it cuts the cost to the taxpayer.
The Minister diligently provided a non-answer.
