    Six UK institutes are engaged in a collaborative R&D programme with CERN aimed at demonstrating key aspects of technology feasibility for the Compact Linear Collider (CLIC). We give an overview and status of: 1) Drive-beam components: quadrupole magnets and the beam phase feed-forward prototype. 2) Beam instrumentation: stripline and cavity beam position monitors, an electro-optical longitudinal bunch profile monitor, and laserwire and diffraction and transition radiation monitors for transverse beam-size determination. 3) Beam delivery system and machinedetector interface design, including beam feedback/control systems and crab cavity design and control. 4) RF structure design. In each case we report on the status of prototype systems and performance tests with beam at the CTF3, ATF2 and CESRTA test facilities, including plans for future experiments.
