star this property answer text <p>The general principle of 'double medalling' remains extant. The issue of a medal for those who served on Arctic Convoys was looked at by Sir John Holmes in his Review of Military Medals, which was conducted independently of the Ministry of Defence. Sir John's recommendation was that an award (the Arctic Star) would be appropriate and this was agreed by the Committee on the Grant of Honours, Decorations and Medals and Her Majesty The Queen. Sir John felt that the Arctic Convoy operation was a separate and distinct campaign, geographically and in every other way, from what was happening in the Atlantic, and should have been considered in that light. As it would be impractical and unfair to withdraw the Atlantic Star from those awarded the Arctic Star, it is considered that double medalling has not occurred in this case.</p><p>While not diminishing the hardships and hazards of the Atlantic Convoys, the Arctic Convoys were subjected to uniquely appalling weather conditions and such an intensity of enemy air and sea attacks that they merited separate recognition from service in the Atlantic and it was therefore felt that this was an exceptional case.</p><p>With regards to double medalling and the Ushakov Medal, Her Majesty's Government have always been appreciative of the Russian Government's wish to honour these brave men. A recommendation was therefore made by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office to exceptionally allow the Ushakov Medal to be accepted and worn. President Putin presented the first medals during his visit to London on 16 June 2013.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Defence Aerospace and the Combat Air sector make a strategically important contribution to securing our military operational advantage and freedom of action, developing high-end technologies and a skilled workforce, and generates revenues and international influence through exports. UK industry leads the world in a number of technology, design and manufacturing capability areas, and maintaining those capabilities is in our national interest.</p><p>In the Strategic Defence and Security Review 2015 we launched the Future Combat Air System Technology Initiative (FCAS TI) which is sustaining our design engineering capacity and skills, ensuring that the UK continues to be at the cutting edge of combat air technology. This includes our cooperation with France to design and build an Unmanned Combat Air Vehicle Demonstrator.</p><p>Our investment in the F-35 programme has secured 15% workshare (by value) of every F-35 to be built in the global programme of 3,000 aircraft, sustaining high-end manufacturing capabilities, skills and capacity as well as providing enduring economic benefit. In addition, from early 2018 North Wales will be home to a global hub, providing maintenance, repair, overhaul and upgrade services for F-35 avionic and aircraft components. Over the lifetime of the programme, the components for hundreds of European-based F-35 aircraft will be serviced and maintained at the site. Similarly our acquisition of, and success in exporting, Typhoon aircraft has provided a considerable manufacturing workload, particularly in the North West of England.</p><p>The Ministry of Defence is considering our future combat air capability requirements and the best approach to delivering the UK's operational needs as well as maintaining our leading role in the combat air sector. This will involve detailed consideration of the industrial, prosperity, international and financial implications as well as a clear military requirement.</p>

Many of the themes in this apply to defence, and we do not plan a separate defence industrial strategy or review. However, as part of the recently announced National Security and Capability Review, we are refreshing defence industrial policy and taking further action to help the UK's defence industry grow and compete successfully.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Russian military aviation has never entered British Sovereign Airspace without permission.</p><p>The RAF has identified, intercepted and escorted Russian military aircraft transiting through international airspace in the vicinity of the UK. Russian military flights can present a potential safety concern to other airspace users because of their practice of not communicating with air traffic control agencies with regard to their intentions, not filing a flight plan or not transmitting a recognisable secondary surveillance radar transponder code. Their activity therefore needs careful monitoring, which is why we intercept such flights.</p><p>The UK works closely with our Allies to keep NATO's airspace safe and secure and to enable a co-ordinated NATO air policing response.</p> more like this
