Defense Secretary Gavin Williamson has sanctioned the cash which will also boost government scientist’s ability to analyze poisonous substances more quickly.  The move comes on the eve of the Salisbury Novichok anniversary where Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia survived the Russia attack. The investment will allow the UK to remain at the forefront of chemical and biological defense with unmanned vehicles conducting more testing of substances.

It will mean the risk posed to humans through contact with grade agents will be reduced dramatically.
