Defence

Britain as a sovereign nation state must be prepared at all times to defend her independence. The Time Party will maintain the UK’s independent nuclear deterrent. This nuclear deterrent must be fully under British control. The ‘Trident Nuclear Programme’ will be maintained. 

 

The party will ensure that the Armed Forces are adequately and responsibly resourced and will look to increase their strength. The Time Party will promote competitive tendering by defence contractors, with an accent on UK-manufactured supply, wherever possible.

 

The Time Party will support veteran rehabilitation via housing and a job guarantee within the police, prison service, port & airport security or in the border control force.

 

With the exception of vital intelligence sharing, the Time Party would withdraw from any previously agreed joint defence arrangements with the European Union.
