Strategic Defence and Security Review

Asked if the Strategic Defence and Security Review (SDSR) provided the flexibility needed in future operations, the PMS said that the SDSR was about ensuring that we had the right kind of forces for the future looking ahead to 2020. We were now starting to implement the SDSR.

Put that there had been a call for the Government to reopen the SDSR, the PMS said that the analysis that underpinned the SDSR was that we were facing a much more uncertain future and that we needed to plan for our armed forces to be more flexible and adaptable for that uncertain future. If we were to undertake that analysis again today we would find that recent events underlined that position.
