The Navy: purpose and procurement

Inquiry

This inquiry will examine what role the Navy should expect to play over the next 20 years and whether naval procurement and support plans are delivering the capabilities required.

The inquiry will assess the threats and standing commitments the Navy is likely to face, as well as specific issues in equipment and programmes that pose a risk to the Navy’s ability to deliver planned capabilities and could threaten the Navy’s overall effectiveness.
