London, Great Britain—Conservative MPs have vowed to bring down the government if the British Armed Forces suffer further cuts.

Twenty-five MPs have penned a letter to the new Defence Secretary, Gavin Williamson threatening to act if the Royal Navy’s only two amphibious assault ships (HMS Bulwark and HMS Albion, for which Turkey has expressed interest) or the Royal Marine’s face any cuts on the upcoming Budget.

“We wish to draw your attention to the potential negative impact that any reduction in our amphibious capability would have, and the subsequent consequences on this country’s ability to respond to international events,” wrote the 25 MPs.

Chancellor of the Exchequer  Phillip Hammond will be revealing his new budget in a much-awaited House of Commons session this Wednesday.  The Ministry of Defence is already facing an almost $3 billion hole.  And to fill it, the government is reportedly planning to slash the 4,500 strong Royal Marines by 1,000 and sell the two amphibious assault ships.
