Scope of the inquiry

In July 2017, the Government announced that it had launched a review of national security capabilities, in support of the ongoing implementation of the 2015 National Security Strategy and Strategic Defence and Security Review (2015 NSS & SDSR).

The Government said the objective of the National Security Capability Review (NSCR) was “to ensure that the UK’s investment in national security capabilities is as joined-up, effective and efficient as possible, to address current national security challenges.” It added that “The review will also be informed by work which has already been commissioned in response to recent national security-related incidents.” These included, but were not limited to, terror attacks in Manchester and London in the first half of 2017.

The Committee plans to hold a two-part inquiry on this subject.
