Ministry of Defence

A ministerial department, also called MOD

The Ministry of Defence (MOD) is the UK government department responsible for implementation of government defence policy and for the British Armed Forces.[1] The MoD manages the day to day running of the armed forces, contingency planning and defence procurement. The military professional structure is embodied in the three single Services (the Royal Navy, Army, and the Royal Air Force).[1]
