Defence Committee

The indispensable ally? US, NATO and UK Defence relations inquiry

Inquiry status: Concluded

Due to the general election on 8 June 2017 the Committee has now completed this inquiry. Following the dissolution of Parliament on 3 May 2017, all Select Committees will cease to exist until after the general election. If an inquiry on this subject is held in the future, the Committee may refer to the evidence already gathered as part of this inquiry.

Scope of the inquiry

The 'special relationship' and NATO are the cornerstones of UK defence. The new administrations in the UK and US face a number of complex international challenges, ranging from a resurgent Russia to the threat of international terrorism, raising questions about NATO’s strategic focus and capabilities. This inquiry will explore how the administrations can build upon the ‘special relationship’ to address these challenges.
