To ask the Secretary of State for Defence which private companies hold contracts with his Department to develop weapons and technology. (89275)

It is not possible to provide specific details on private companies with which the MOD holds contracts to develop weapons and technology without incurring disproportionate cost. However, based on the Type of Work Code classification, in this case “Demonstration”, allocated to each contract recorded on the Defence Bills Agency database, which covers 95 per cent. of MOD’s business, it has been possible to identify a list of all companies currently engaged in these contracts which include “development”. The details are as follows:
