Nick Harvey interviewed by Defence Management Journal

The Defence Management Journal website has excerpts from a forthcoming interview with Nick Harvey, defence minister and Liberal Democrat MP for North Devon:
"I think that emphasis on working with European partners is something that very much strikes a chord with core Lib Dem approaches. I think the emphasis on doing everything in accordance with UN Resolutions and proper legal cover, is something that Lib Dems are, to some extent, custodians of. We were critical of Iraq on that basis. 
"There are not, I think, gaping philosophical chasms between the Conservatives and the Liberal Democrats on the day-to-day business of running defence, it's a good working relationship between ministers in the MoD."
