To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what the estimated cost is of the six Type 45 destroyers to be procured by his Department; and what the estimated cost was of the eight which were originally planned to be procured. (114139)

The estimated cost for six Type 45 Destroyers as detailed in Major Project Review (MPR) 2006 is £6,110 million (including cost of capital).

Whilst the Type 45 capability requirement remains for up to eight ships, the Department only currently has an approved programme for six.
