Policy Area: DEFENCE Date of Discussion: 28.09.11
Conservative Defence policy is based on the following principles:
a) Alliances and partnerships will remain a fundamental part of our approach to defence and security.
b) NATO is the bedrock of our defence.
c) Our main defence and security relationship is with the USA.
d) Our obligations to NATO Allies will continue to be among our highest priorities.
The background paper circulated for this discussion was based largely on the following 3 documents:
- “The Strategic Defence and Security Review” published by the Stationery Office in October 2010.
- “Strategic Concept for the Defence and Security of the Members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation” adopted by the Heads of State and Governments in Lisbon in November 2010
- “Future Reserves” published by the Independent Commission to Review the United Kingdom’s Reserve Forces in July 2011.
