Defence Committee, House of Commons inquiry on armed forces readiness, has launched a call for evidence; The Committee welcomes written evidence on the following:


  • Are the armed forces sufficiently capable, resourced and ready to protect the UK and our allies?
  • What are the main gaps in capability and/or readiness, and what will it take to fill these gaps?
  • Are the UK armed forces a ‘tier one fighting force’? Do they need to be?
  • What are the consequences of the army having been “hollowed out and underfunded”?
  • Which of these consequences needs to be addressed most urgently?
  • Are the Government’s plans sufficient to address any shortfalls?
