Defence: Statistics

Volume 485: debated on Monday 15 December 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what estimate he has made of the likely reduction in his Department's expenditure as a result of discontinuing publication of defence export delivery statistics by UK Defence Statistics. (243253)

The direct saving to the Department by discontinuing the publication of defence export delivery statistics in “UK Defence Statistics” will be in the region of £30,000 per annum in staff costs. There are also additional, unquantified savings which have resulted from the avoidance of further work to implement alternative methods to produce these statistics for next year.
