This paper looks at the UK’s approach to defence and the potential consequences of Scottish independence.
This is the sixth paper in the UK government’s Scotland analysis series and looks at:
- how the UK and Scotland benefit from an integrated approach to defence
- the UK’s international defence alliances and relationships
- the opportunities for the UK’s defence industry that a single, UK wide, domestic defence market and exports provides
The paper also looks at the possible consequences for Scotland, if it were no longer part of the UK.
