Defence Report

by msecadm4921

The Society of British Aerospace Companies (SBAC), a UK aerospace, defence and security trade association has today reacted to a House of Commons Defence Committee report on the defence contribution to UK national security and resilience.

Ian Godden, SBAC Chief Executive, said: "The committee is right to recognise that the security industry works well with Government and to recommend a clear connection between industry and the National Security Strategy. The industry believes that ‘we’re all in this together’ with the authorities and this should be reflected more formally when the NSS is updated this summer.<br><br>&quot;The Government has improved its processes for working with the industry to deliver UK security on counter-terrorism issues. However, our sector still finds it difficult to engage the Government in a cross-departmental manner. The most notable omission from the first version of the National Security Strategy from an industry perspective was the absence of a high level sketch of the industrial interface mechanisms and broad capabilities available to the UK Government on security matters. Like the French Defence and Security White Paper published in June 2008, the second iteration of the Government’s National Security Strategy should consider in more detail how it plans to work with the defence and security industry.&quot;<br><br>Notes <br><br>SBAC is also on Twitter at www.twitter.com/UKSBAC.<br><br>For more information on SBAC and security – go to www.sbac.co.uk/security.<br><br>The Society of British Aerospace Companies (SBAC) is a trade association representing companies supplying civil air transport, defence, security and space. SBAC encompasses the British Aviation Group. Together with its regional partners, SBAC represents over 2,600 companies.
