The UK faces a fast-changing defence landscape at time when new threats and new technologies require that we focus closely on key priorities, work closely with allies, and provide the appropriate resources for our armed services. The recently published government ‘Integrated Review of Security, Defence, Development and Foreign Policy’ is a widely scoped prospectus which does not go into detail and does not reconcile existing budgetary issues. These matters are important, particularly for our economy, our industries and the workers employed in them. Shadow Secretary of State for Defence, Rt Hon John Healey MP, will lead an Industry Forum virtual roundtable on the topic of ‘Issues and priorities for UK defence’.
