asked the Secretary of State for Defence what progress has been made in the Eurogroup in harmonising tactical and strategic concepts prior to the joint procurement and standardisation of weapons systems.

The Eurogroup sub-group Eurolongterm is making good progress in developing agreed tactical concepts as a basis for drawing up the operational requirements for future weapons systems.
