Departmental Public Expenditure

Volume 506: debated on Wednesday 24 February 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what estimate he has made of his Department's expenditure on urgent operational requirements in 2009-10. (314472)

We have recently raised our 2009-10 Urgent Operational Requirements estimate to £936 million. The precise in-year spend will not be known until after the end of the financial year but we are currently forecasting that we will spend close to, but below, the estimate.
