Lib mp defends brighton barracks sale of defence equipment, says it would save £40,000 and help reduce cost to police by £100,000
Brighton council has defended its deci포커 족보sion to raise the alarm about the sale of its defensive equipment to the army, claiming the £40,000 cost savings would mean a saving of £40,000 over the life of the deal.
The deal will cost the council more than £30,000 over the first five years, as a defence contractor cannot purchase more than two sets of equipment or weapons.
The council has also suggested the sale could reduce the costs to police by £100,000 over the first five years.
MPs voted to raise the alarm about the sale of their equipment to British forces as the UK stands the danger of potential terrorist attacks and a rising terrorist threat.
A report commissioned by the council, commissioned by MP Keith Vaz (LD), said the council would face a “credible threat” from terrorism and armed attackers if it did not immediately respond to counter-terrorism plans.
Councillor Paul Booth QC, cabinet member for security, warned the council that it had “serious doubts as to how the £40,000 savings in terms of cost and security reduction over five years, as described by council policy and the recommendations, can be achieved”.
He said: “It would be difficult to envisage the council achieving this savings on the scale it would need, if it were to take the risk of selling this capability to the Army.”
The council says it had made an assessment about using defence equipment given to police as part of a “special protection package” to prevent terrorist attacks on the public.
The council had previously said the equipment c부산 출장ould be used to detect explosive devices, detect veh예스 카지노icles, identify criminals with mobile phones, help officers in hostage situations, and to help them locate missing victims.
A spokesman for the council said that while the council had “consulted about the potential risks” surrounding the sale of the equipment, there was now no way for it to ensure the protection of the public’s security at risk, because of the “credible threat of terrorism”.
He said: “We have asked the Ministry of Defence (MoD) to assist the council in carrying out this work and a MoD spokesman said the MoD was ready to facilitate the sale of this equipment.”
It also emerged today that police have now been instructed to carry out an assessment of the potential impact on security if a sale take
