Captain Kerby

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what is the value of the long lead items for which contracts have been placed for the new aircraft carrier CVA-01; and whether similar equipment has beer ordered for a second new carrier.

Mr. Mayhew

Contracts valued at just over £3½ million have been placed in aid of CVA-01. No commitments have been undertaken in respect of a second new carrier.
