Secrecy

In 2015 Mike Penning claimed that files relating to the investigation and conviction of the Shrewsbury 24 would not be released, on the grounds of "national security".[1]

Statements

"Britain's military must stop being used as a 'cash cow' for overseas aid missions, the ex-Armed Forces minister says today. Sir Mike Penning warns operations such as the Royal Navy's task of rescuing migrants in the Mediterranean are 'draining military capabilities'."[2]
