To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, what discussions he has had with ministerial colleagues on developing a common strategy for the emerging common EU market in defence.
Answer (Harriett Baldwin)
Ministry of Defence Ministers regularly discuss European defence industrial issues and strategy with their ministerial colleagues. The overall objective of these discussions is to ensure the EU promotes open markets, that it supports NATO and the transatlantic relationship, and does not threaten UK defence and defence industrial interests.
