The Modernising Defence Programme is an ongoing programme of work. It aims to deliver better military capability and value for money, so that Defence is configured to address the more complex threats we face, as well as achieving enduring affordability.

Since its launch we have made good progress, as set out in the headline conclusions in the Written Statement published on 19 July (HCWS883). We are aiming to share more detailed conclusions following a further period of analysis and cross-Government discussion.
