The UK discusses a broad range of issues with counterparts on improving NATO's collective security. NATO is undertaking a once-in-a-generation transformation, agreeing a new generation of warfighting plans, to ensure that the Alliance can deter and defend seamlessly across all domains.

The UK has committed almost all our Armed Forces across the full spectrum of capabilities under the NATO Force Model - our strongest ever force contribution to the Alliance.

However, the Government has no current plans to reintroduce National Service or any form of conscription.
