Defence in Scotland


Defence in Scotland: military personnel and estate

The Committee has launched an inquiry series into Defence in Scotland. This begins with an inquiry into the military personnel and military estate landscape in Scotland.

The Committee is exploring the impact the UK’s changing defence priorities and capabilities – including base closures, but also new military infrastructure investments – will have on communities in Scotland. As part of this the Committee is assessing whether the UK Government should offer any additional support to those affected. The Committee is also seeking views on how well Scottish people and places are represented in the UK military, and on the role of military installations in Scotland in supporting the UK’s international alliances.

Read the call for evidence and press release for more detail about the inquiry. 

The deadline for submissions was Monday 4 October, however, the Committee is still accepting submissions.
