Derek Twigg – 2014 Parliamentary Question to the Ministry of Defence

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Derek Twigg on 2014-04-02.

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, what his Department spend was in total in 2013-14 on defence procurement; and what proportion of that total was spent in the (a) UK, (b) EU and (c) rest of the world.

Mr Philip Dunne

Information on spending on defence procurement in financial year 2013-14 will be available once the audit of defence expenditure in that year has been completed; we are due to report our 2013-14 financial performance in our Annual Report and Accounts before the House rises for the summer recess. Information for April to September 2013 was published in the Ministry of Defence (MOD)’s Mid Year Report on 24 January 2014, available at the following link: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/ministry-of-defence-mid-year-progress-report

The MOD does not routinely record information on the geographic location of its supply chain.
