To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, pursuant to his answer of 7 February, Official Report, column 329, on the defence budget, on how many occasions in each of the last six months he has made available information on plans for, and progress of, individual projects.

My Department makes available information on the plans and progress of projects in a wide variety of ways. These include parliamentary statements, debates and questions; the Statement of the Defence Estimates; press releases and briefings; and discussions with industry and trades union which range from the major conferences held by the Procurement Executive controllers to contacts in the normal course of business. It would not be feasible to list the information made available through these means in the last six months.
