It’s a great privilege to be leading Labour’s defence review, at Jeremy Corbyn’s request. This will be a comprehensive review of Britain’s defence challenges and options for the 21st century.  It will be open, transparent and inclusive, and its conclusions will be based on the evidence.

We will encourage the widest possible participation of Labour party members and affiliates, as well as defence specialists, NGOs and the armed forces.  At every stage of the process, we will give full scope to the wide range of views on this subject in an atmosphere of mutual respect and trust.

Emily Thornberry MP, Labour’s Shadow Defence Secretary
