Defence report 'not suppressed'

Defence minister Quentin Davies denies ministers have suppressed a report that states billions of pounds has been wasted in defence procurement.

Commissioned by the Ministry of Defence, it has been reported the Gray review found up to £2.5bn a year was being wasted because it could not afford to pay for projects on time.

Mr Davies told the BBC that the report had yet to be completed, and he denies accusations that money has been wasted by the MoD.
