Today’s top question: missile testing

Today people in Telford were expressing concerns to me about the Government’s missile testing and the reports in some newspapers of ‘cover up’ and ‘crisis.’

I sat in the Defence Minister’s statement to the House of Commons and having read around the issue this is my take on this issue:

Missile testing takes place regularly and these tests are not reported in public for reasons of national security. On this occasion, before the current Prime Minister was in post, a test was carried out that revealed a malfunction, the malfunction was subsequently corrected.

Reference to cover up and crisis was a misrepresentation of the situation and somewhat irresponsible in my  view.
