12th March 2020 - 12:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The UK Parliament’s Defence Select Committee has relaunched its Defence Industrial Policy: Procurement and Prosperity Inquiry, which began in the last parliament.

The inquiry will assess the tension between competition and strategic choice, as well as deciding whether a new procurement strategy is needed as part of a wider Integrated Review.

Tobias Ellwood, Chair of the Defence Committee said: ‘Procurement and Prosperity’ will explore fundamental questions around the wider role of defence as a major contributor to the UK economy and will ask how to ensure that the UK defence industry remains a valuable economic and strategic asset.’

The committee is receiving new evidence which must be submitted before 23 April.
