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.
