DEFENCE secretary Michael Fallon has insisted Britain should fulfil commitments amid questions on whether the government will abandon the two per cent Nato target for military spending.

The former minister for Portsmouth urged people to look at the government’s record and dismissed criticism that the UK was withdrawing from the international stage.

Speaking on the Andrew Marr show Mr Fallon said figures would confirm the two per cent threshold is being met.
