Inquiry Risk Assessment and Risk Planning

Possible questions include:

  • Is the National Security Risk Assessment a useful document for LRFs and is it fit for purpose? How could it be improved?
  • How do LRFs engage with the community, particularly vulnerable groups? What engagement do you have with volunteer forces? 
  • Is the Civil Contingencies Act 2004 fit for purpose? Do LRFs have adequate statutory footing and what do they make of the Government’s Integrated Review suggestion of creating a ‘Volunteer Cadre’ to support resilience? 
  • Do you have regular contact and established communication channels with central and local Government, both in ‘peace’ time and during an emergency? 
  • What, in your view, is your role in building UK resilience and responding to emergencies? What have you learnt from your experience responding to COVID-19?
