Consultation description

This white paper is the next stage in the government’s reform of its powers in relation to protecting national security from hostile actors’ acquisition of control over entities or assets.

It follows the National Security and Infrastructure Investment Review green paper, published in October 2017, and takes account of the responses to that consultation, a summary of which has been published on that page.
