To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, if she will place a copy of the most recent UK National Implementation Plan under the EU’s Common Security and Defence Policy in the Library; and if she will make a statement.
11 July 2019
National Implementation Plans under the EU's Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP) may refer to either Permanent Structured Cooperation (PESCO) or civilian CSDP. As the UK is not a PESCO participating Member State and is not subject to the PESCO binding commitments, we have not developed a National Implementation Plan for PESCO. We are considering whether a National Implementation Plan for civilian CSDP is required before the UK leaves the EU.
