Our refreshed Defence Industrial Policy, published in December 2017, sets out our commitment to encouraging a thriving and globally competitive UK defence sector as an integral part of the Government's overall Industrial Strategy. The Department continues to monitor the implementation and impact of our policies to ensure that our approach remains effective. This includes consideration of alternative approaches in specific areas, as we have already done in the National Shipbuilding and Combat Air sectors.
