Notes for editors

This Report is a follow-up to the major Report on UK-US relations that our predecessor Committee published in March 2010, just before the UK General Election and a year into President Obama’s first term of office. Four years on, the Report discusses policy towards the US under the Coalition Government, the state of the bilateral relationship, the impact of the two states’ decisions in August 3013 about possible military action in Syria, some machinery of Government issues, and selected strategic issues, including the US ‘pivot to Asia’ and the UK’s EU membership.
