HC Deb 16 November 1982 vol 32 c153W
40. Dr. Owen

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what is the estimated cost of the Polaris remotoring project; and, in the light of this expenditure, when it is envisaged that the last Polaris submarine will cease active service.

Mr. Pattie

The currently estimates cost is of the order of £300 million. This will ensure that Polaris remains effective until it finally phases out in the second half of the 1990s.
