Call for Evidence

Update to the UK's Integrated Review of Security, Defence, Development and Foreign Policy

This submission form is not currently public. Please only use this form if invited to do so by the committee, otherwise your submission might not be considered.

The Committee welcomes written evidence submissions that address the following question:

  • In light of changes to the UK’s strategic environment since the publication of the Integrated Review of Security, Defence, Development and Foreign Policy in March 2021, what updates should the Government make to the Integrated Review?

Your submission should:

  • be concise - if over 3,000 words, include a short summary as well
  • be presented in numbered paragraphs
  • include an introduction to you or your organisation and your reason for submitting evidence
  • not already be published

Submissions should be in malleable format such as MS Word (not PDFs) with no use of colour or logos. Guidance on submitting written evidence and data protection information is available here: Guidance on submitting written evidence.

Deadline for submissions

The deadline for written submissions is 23:59pm on 28 November. Written evidence may be submitted on the basis of anonymity (meaning that it will be published, but without your name), or in confidence (meaning that it won't be published at all). If you would like to submit evidence anonymously or in confidence, you will be able to select this option during the submission process. Please also state at the beginning of your evidence which of these you want to request, and tell us why.

It is recommended that all submitters familiarise themselves with the Guidance on giving evidence to a Select Committee of the House of Commons which outlines particulars of word count, format, document size, and content restrictions.


We encourage members of underrepresented groups to submit written evidence. We aim to have diverse panels of Select Committee witnesses and ask organisations to bear this in mind when we ask them to choose a representative. We are currently monitoring the diversity of our witnesses.
