Foreign Secretary introduces foreign and defence policy review in Parliament

The UK walks “taller today than it has done for many years”, the Foreign Secretary has said. Making a statement in the Commons on the 2023 Integrated Review (IR) Refresh, James Cleverly said the conclusions of the previous review “have run as a golden strategic thread through all of our activities across defence and deterrence, diplomacy, trade and investment, intelligence, security, international development, science and technology over the last two years”.
