Defence: Training

Volume 495: debated on Friday 3 July 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence whether his Department has approved a review note authorising funding for the Defence Training Review Package 1 planning process. (283658)

Review notes and the consequent contingent liabilities which include underwriting the costs of the planning process have been approved. These were included within departmental minutes in relation to the Defence Training Review Package 1 Project which were lodged in the Library of the House on 29 January 2008, 17 February 2009 and 26 June 2009 respectively. In the case of the latter, approval of the underwrite is dependant on the successful outcome of contract negotiations.
