(asked on 4th February 2021) - View Source

Question to the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office:

To ask Her Majesty's Government what plans they have to carry out a national security risk assessment as part of the Integrated Review of Security, Defence, Development and Foreign Policy; whether any such assessment will be published; and if so, where.

This question was answered on 18th February 2021

The Integrated Review will cover all aspects of international and national security policy - defence, diplomacy, development and national resilience. Uniting development and diplomacy in one department brings together Britain's international effort to have even greater impact and influence on the world stage as we recover from the coronavirus pandemic. The Review will assess what will be needed to deliver our new strategy, in addition to seizing the opportunities offered by the new Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office.

The full conclusions of the Integrated Review will be announced in March.
