UK Defence and Security Policy: The Labour Party’s Vision

calendarclock - (GMT)

An address by the Rt Hon John Healey MP, Shadow Secretary of State for Defence, on the Labour Party’s vision for UK defence and security policy.

With the Government’s long-awaited Integrated Review expected to be published shortly and a new funding settlement for the MoD announced last November, Britain’s defence and security policy is embarking on a new phase of development and adaptation. In his speech, John Healey will give his views on recent developments, set out the fundamentals of Labour’s defence and security policy and outline how Labour will judge the outcome of the Integrated Review.

The Rt Hon John Healey MP was appointed as the Shadow Secretary of State for Defence in April 2020, having previously served as the Shadow Secretary of State for Housing and as Shadow Secretary of State for Health. He held various ministerial roles during the last Labour Government, including Minister of State for Housing and Planning. He was first elected MP for Wentworth in 1997.

The webinar is moderated by Professor Malcolm Chalmers, Deputy Director-General, RUSI.
