Education: Commons Defence Committee Seeks Your Input

#1
We've just had this by email which I'm sure will be a subject of considerable interest to many of us. Certainly an opportunity to make your views known on subjects such as CEA!

The Defence Committee invites Service personnel and their families to take part in an on-line forum we have set up for you to contribute to these inquiries.

The National Audit Office is running two online surveys for us, the questionnaires are on their website at Current surveys: Consultations for the Defence Select Committee - National Audit Office until the end of February or you can get to them through our website at Defence Committee - UK Parliament.


We want to hear your views - please take this opportunity to tell us your experiences of:

  • The education for Service children
  • The education of Armed Forces personnel
More information is on our website at Defence Committee - UK Parliament

Can you ping back and ask them to do one regarding procurement?


There was Defence Equipment in 2010 http://www.publications.parliament.uk/pa/cm200910/cmselect/cmdfence/99/99.pdf

Or The SDSR report last year covered alot of it http://www.publications.parliament.uk/pa/cm201012/cmselect/cmdfence/761/761.pdf

And if you go to their website at midnight tonight they will have their Defence Acquistion report published about the Defence Industrial Strategy Defence Committee - UK Parliament

The Public Accounts Committee last week put out a statement on Defence Equipment at Statement on Ministry of Defence: Equipment Plan 2012-2022 - News from Parliament - UK Parliament

This is the cross-party Defence Select Committee, not the Government or the MOD.

I guess the difference is that the Defence Committee's job is to hold the MOD to account in everything it does. So this Inquiry is to see if Service children get a good or bad deal. The MOD will have to answer every one of their reccomendations when the report in a few months.
