To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what his most recent estimate is of the cost of the Defence Training Review contract over the next five financial years. (275050)

The most recent estimate of the cost of the Defence Training Review (DTR) contract over the next five financial years, after expected contract signature in 2010, is £1.8 billion. It should be noted that the vast majority of this figure represents the operating costs that we carry today within the existing training establishment.
