Q: What do you see as your priorities for the next 12 months?
A: I came into the Department with five main priorities and they’ve broadly stayed the same. My top two priorities are submarines and submarines. That’s in-service submarines, and the new build programmes we have underway. Then there’s implementing the Acquisition Review and focussing on complex weapons. And finally, driving forward the Defence and Security Industrial Strategy, particularly shipbuilding, supply chain resilience and ensuring industry have the right skills, or “human capital,” in place to support Defence programmes.
