Armed Forces: Eurofighter Typhoon

Volume 687: debated on Monday 18 December 2006

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether, bearing in mind that detailed cost variation data since approval for Typhoon remain commercially sensitive, the financial position of the Typhoon project has grown worse, remained static or improved over the past 12 months. [HL383]

I am withholding the details of the current financial position of the Eurofighter Typhoon programme as it is commercially sensitive. The Committee of Public Accounts, which is responsible for examination of public expenditure, is fully aware of the project’s financial position as it was reported to it by the department in its Major Projects Report 2006.
