In March this year I announced DSIS - a cross-Government review into the UK's defence and security industrial sectors, we are identifying how we can enhance our strategic approach to ensure we have competitive, innovative and world-class defence and security industries that underpin our national security and drive investment and prosperity across the Union now and in the future.

The MOD has been leading this review, with input from other relevant Government Departments, to ensure that we have the industrial capabilities that we need to meet current and future threats to our national security.
