Call for Evidence

Foreign Involvement in the Defence Supply Chain

The Committee welcomes evidence on the following:

  • What is the current extent of foreign ownership of the UK’s defence and security sectors?
  • What has been the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the defence and security supply chain, particularly the finances of SMEs?
  • Under what circumstance will the Government currently intervene to prevent foreign takeovers in these sectors and what changes does the planned National Security Investment Bill make?
  • Are additional measures required to protect UK Defence and Security technological advances?
  • How does the UK’s regime compare internationally and what can the UK learn from its allies?

This call for written evidence has now closed.
