asked the Civil Lord of the Admiralty what is the total expenditure that has been incurred by the Admiralty in connection with the establishment of the Polaris submarine base at Holy Loch up to 30th April.

The capital cost of facilities so far provided by the Admiralty is estimated at approximately £260,000. Running costs of these facilities and of the services rendered by the Royal Navy are estimated at £135,000 per annum. If any share of these costs falls on the United Kingdom it is likely to be very small.
