Government 'rows back on defence cuts to fund conflicts in Libya and Afghanistan'
"It is estimated that the Treasury will give the Ministry of Defence an extra £100million to keep the forces at strength.
"RAF fighters, pilots and transport aircraft, as well as Navy frigates, will all be protected from the cuts detailed in October's defence spending review.
"The extra funding is to come from a "back door" route in an effort to prevent other departments from complaining that the MoD is getting special treatment. David Cameron has asked for a breakdown of the costs over the next few days before he approves them."
