Lord Levene has delivered his fourth annual report on Defence reform and has praised the pace within the Ministry of Defence.
Lord Levene of Portsoken has delivered his fourth annual progress report on Defence reform and has commended the Ministry of Defence for the ‘timely and successful execution’ of its reform programme. In his latest assessment Lord Levene credited the department and senior leadership for driving forward a very substantial change programme.
Lord Levene has acknowledged that the great majority of the reform programme set out in the original Levene 2011 report has been implemented. Now Lord Levene has set out five more recommendations. They include reductions in the size of the Defence Estate and the department’s top structure as well as simplification of the planning and resource allocation process.
