Consultation description

The National Security and Investment Act requires the Secretary of State to publish a statement explaining how the power to call in acquisitions under the Act is expected to be used.

The statement will help parties to an acquisition to understand whether their acquisition is likely to be called in by the Secretary of State and to plan accordingly.

This consultation seeks views on the draft content of the statement ahead of the final version being laid before Parliament in due course. We expect it to be of interest in particular to:

  • businesses
  • investors
  • the legal community
