Strategic Defence and Security Review

Asked when the next Strategic Defence and Security Review (SDSR) would be, the PMS said that there was currently no timing for the next SDSR. We had been clear that the National Security Council (NSC) would continually look at the issue of national security and the Government would report annually to Parliament on the strategy.

Asked if this week’s National Security Strategy (NSS) constituted the NSC’s first annual report, the PMS said that we would expect in a year’s time to update people on the strategy.

Asked what the rationale was for this week’s NSS when there had been one in 2009, the PMS said that the purpose of the current strategy was to inform policies over the coming years, and part of that was planning where the resources should be focused.

Put that there could have been some duplication of work, the PMS said that the Select Committee report which had been published overnight wouldn’t necessarily agree with that.
