To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they have recently re-assessed the global strategic environment; and if not, whether the national requirement for amphibious capability will remain as predicated in the 1998, 2010 and 2015 strategic defence reviews.

We keep developments in the global strategic environment under constant review. The Ministry of Defence (MOD) is playing a full role in the Government's National Security Capability Review, which will help to ensure that the UK's investment in national security capabilities is as joined-up, effective and efficient as possible.

As part of this review, we have undertaken to look again at the full range of capabilities available to the MOD, to ensure that we continue to have the right capabilities in the right places to address current national security challenges.
