Philip Hammond: Army, Saudi Arabia, Syria and Trident

The defence secretary said the UK "had to cut our coat to fit the cloth" with government plans for a "smaller regular Army".

He was also asked about the UK selling arms to Saudi Arabia, helping rebels in Syria, and the future of Trident submarines as he spoke to Andrew Neil on Remembrance Day.
