The Government have now released their ‘Integrated Review‘ of the UK’s defence, and diplomacy and development policy. Except development barely featured. You can read our reactions to it on both development and civilian protection issues here.
In response to the review’s publication, we hosted a special event with our friends at Labour Friends of the Forces and the Labour Foreign Policy Group.
The event explored the key elements and gaps in the Integrated Review as well as how Labour should respond, building upon the IR to articulate its own ambition for Britain in the World.
Speakers included Wayne David MP, Shadow FCO Minister, Sarah Champion MP, Chair of the International Development Select Committee; Lord Robertson, former NATO Secretary General; and Rt Hon Jack Straw, former Foreign Secretary.
