Question for Ministry of Defence

UIN 21896, tabled on 27 February 2020

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, whether he plans to discuss with his EU counterparts changes to Third Country involvement in their Coordinated Annual Review on Defence.

Answered on

3 March 2020

As a non-EU country, the UK will not participate in the Coordinated Annual Review on Defence (CARD), and we have no plans to ask for CARD to be open to third countries. The UK will, however, continue to call for full coherence between CARD and NATO's Defence Planning Process to avoid unnecessary duplication.
