Last March the Defence Secretary invited the right hon. Member for Ludlow (Philip Dunne) to review opportunities for "Growing the Contribution of Defence to UK Prosperity". We are currently working with UK defence industry to respond to his recommendations.
Following the creation of the national security objective to 'Promote our Prosperity' in the 2015 Strategic Defence and Security Review we have refreshed Defence Industrial Policy to help strengthen UK competitiveness, published a National Shipbuilding Strategy and launched the Future Combat Air Strategy. We also engage with global primes to create opportunities for all tiers of the UK supply chain.
