To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what his Department's science innovation and technology budget is for 2010-11.

[Official Report, 1 September 2009, Vol. 496, c. 1798W.]

Letter of correction from Mr. Quentin Davies:

An error has been identified in the written answer given to the hon. Member for Woodspring (Dr. Fox) on 1 September 2009.

The correct answer should have been: (284525)

The current planning assumption is that the SIT budget will have available approximately £439 million in 2010-11. This compares with £544 million in 2010-11 in a previous planning cycle when calculated on the same basis. Departmental expenditure limits have not yet been set for the years beyond 2010-11.
