Britain is willing to provide all our Armed Forces to fight under the EU flag in future wars, a minister has revealed.
Europe Minister Caroline Flint said that every operational unit of the British Army, the Royal Navy and RAF will be on offer as part of an EU 'force catalogue'.
This would help form a 60,000-strong, joint EU military reaction force to police the world's trouble-spots.
Questioned by MPs this week, about Britain's commitment to the controversial plans, she said: 'We are prepared to provide all our forces that are suitable for operations within the EU level of action.'
This suggested that the entire Army, Navy and RAF will be put at the EU's disposal - with the likely exception of Trident submarines carrying Britain's nuclear deterrent missiles.
