Ballistic Missile Defence

Volume 481: debated on Thursday 23 October 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what direct running costs the UK has incurred to date in the use of RAF Menwith Hill and RAF Fylingdales in the US Missile Defence System. (228389)

Running costs at RAF Menwith Hill and RAF Fylingdales associated with the US Missile Defence System are not identified separately from other functions of the station. We do not anticipate the direct running costs incurred by the UK will increase because of the participation of these stations in the US ballistic missile defence system.
