North Korea inquiry


The Defence Committee is examining the threats posed to the UK by North Korean capability, particularly from nuclear and cyber-attack, and the UK’s capability to respond to these threats. The Committee will also examine how the UK is currently responding to the North Korean crisis and its options for responding to further military escalation.

This inquiry follows a one-off oral evidence session that the Committee held in September 2017 on the nuclear and missile testing by North Korea and the situation in the region.
