I'm hearing that the publication of the defence review may be brought forward to October 19th. That would only give it a day's coverage before the spending review detonates and wipes everything else off the news agenda.
If true, it suggests the government wants it out the picture as soon as possible. That could be a left over embarrasment from the Liam Fox letter, or perhaps it doesn't want journalists having time to dig too far into it.
The Ministry of Defence is refusing to comment.
