Defence: Inflation

Volume 477: debated on Thursday 19 June 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what the rate of defence inflation was in each of the last five years; and what the forecast figures for the rate of defence inflation are in each of the next five years. (211498)

The MOD does not produce estimates of defence inflation. Work is currently under way to explore whether it might be possible to develop a robust and reliable index of inflationary pressures in defence.
