Volume 467: debated on Thursday 15 November 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what the in-year budget was for helicopter procurement in (a) 1996-97, (b) 1997-98, (c) 1999-2000 and (d) 2001-02. (162521)

Budget figures for the early years are no longer held centrally and could be provided only at disproportionate cost. The in-year budget for all helicopter procurement projects for financial year 2001-02 is £842 million. This figure excludes funding for emergent urgent requirements and some commodity items bought in support of these projects.
