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:
Terms of reference: NSS & SDSR 2015
- 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.
