Veterans Day 2006

Volume 455: debated on Thursday 25 January 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what the total cost was to his Department of the 2006 Veterans day event. (110608)

The cost of Veterans day 2006 to the Department’s Veterans budget was £406,000. This does not include the costs associated with the deployment of bands, display teams, catering units and other service assets which played a part in the national and local events; these costs cannot be separately identified but the involvement was not large-scale.
