Army bases: 'Enormous questions' says Labour

The shadow defence secretary has said there are some enormous questions to be answered before the policy to bring troops home from Germany can be "declared a success."

Jim Murphy said, "We need to make sure that this does save money, that it is good for the UK economy, that the figures the government are using today add up."

Defence Secretary Philip Hammond has announced the closure of four UK Army bases as part of a shake-up to accommodate the returning troops.
