Scope of the inquiry

The Joint Committee on the National Security Strategy is launching an inquiry examining the National Security Strategy and Strategic Defence and Security Review 2015 (NSS & SDSR 2015).

The inquiry considers several areas including:

  • whether the NSS & SDSR 2015 is a practical guide to investment choices across Government Departments, to operational priorities and to crisis response,
  • how the NSS & SDSR 2015 addresses risk and contingency planning, and
  • whether the NSS & SDSR 2015 defines "national security" in sufficiently broad terms and achieves an appropriate balance between military, economic and environmental risks.
Terms of reference: NSS & SDSR 2015
