Departmental Public Expenditure

Volume 479: debated on Monday 1 September 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence if he will break down his Department’s main estimate in (a) near cash and (b) non-cash terms on the same basis as in his answers to the hon. Member for Aldershot on 4 March 2008, Official Report, column 2346W and 5 March 2008, Official Report, column 2284W. (218334)

I will write to the hon. Member and place a copy of my letter in the Library of the House.

Substantive answer from Bob Ainsworth to Gerald Howarth:

I undertook to write to you in answer to your Parliamentary Question on 14 July 2008, Official Report, column 168W, requesting a breakdown of the Department’s main estimate in near cash and non-cash terms on the same basis as previous replies on 4 March 2008, Official Report, column 2346W and 5 March 2008, Official Report, column 2284W.

I attach tables which provide a detailed breakdown of the Department’s Main Estimates for 2008-09.

I am placing a copy of this letter in the Library of the House.
