National security machinery

Inquiry

Because of the concerns it highlighted in its recent Biosecurity and national security report, and the urgency of the need to establish effective national security structures to prepare for further future emergencies, the Joint Committee on the National Security Strategy is examining how well the national security machinery operates — including the roles of the National Security Council and National Security Adviser, key government departments and agencies, and their coordination on national security issues.
