The FCO’s role in blocking foreign asset stripping in the UK


This inquiry will examine how the FCO assesses whether a potentially hostile party is seeking to secure significant influence or control over a UK company and in what circumstances the FCO should intervene.

The Committee will also focus on what safeguards are required in the forthcoming National Security and Investment Bill to ensure that the FCO has a full role in the decision-making process in relation to interventions.

This inquiry is currently accepting evidence
