Strategic Defence Review: A New Chapter (Cm5566)

Following the appalling events of 11 September, the then Secretary of State for Defence, Mr Geoff Hoon MP, announced that the Ministry of Defence would look again at its defence posture and plans to ensure that we have the right concepts, the right forces and the right capabilities to meet the additional challenges we face from international terrorism and asymmetric threats (defined as the threat of an attack by unconventional methods which would have a disproportionate effect).
