Volume 712: debated on Thursday 9 July 2009

Question

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government how they intend to allocate the defence budget between military salaries and large defence equipment projects. [HL4829]

The Defence Plan 2008-12 (Cm 7385), sets out the planned defence budget up to 2010-11 in section IV entitled “The Government Expenditure Plan”. This reflects the outcome of the 2007 Comprehensive Spending Review and includes a high level breakdown of costs. Copies of The Defence Plan 2008-12 are available in the Library of the House and can also be found at the following link at http://www.mod.uk/DefenceInternet/AboutDefence/CorporatePublications/BusinessPlans/DefencePlans/.
