Ministry of Defence (MOD) Ministers and officials hold regular discussions with their counterparts in the Department for Business Innovation and Skills (BIS) on a range of issues, including on the defence industry. The details of commercial decisions and their impacts on specific groups of employees are matters for the companies concerned. MOD Ministers have discussed the assistance BIS might offer with their counterparts on a number of occasions, although the decisions are for BIS Ministers to determine.
