The Ministry of Defence has no plans to collect data on the number of workers leaving the UK defence industry.

As part of our Defence Prosperity Programme we are working with the Defence Growth Partnership and the Department for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy to develop a new Joint Economic Data Hub (JEDHub) within the UK Defence Solutions Centre at Farnborough to improve how we quantify the defence sector's contribution to the UK economy.
