asked the Secretary of State for Defence what is his Department's estimate of the cost of deploying Cruise missiles at Molesworth; and how much has been spent so far.

It is estimated that the total cost of constructing the Cruise missile base at RAF Molesworth will be some £45 million, of which about 70 per cent. has already been spent. A further £5 million (of which 80 per cent. has already been spent) is required to fund outer perimeter fencing for the base, the construction of a base perimeter road and local road improvements.
