HC Deb 13 February 1985 vol 73 c199W
Mr. Strang

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what is Her Majesty's Government's contribution towards the cost of the United States facilities at Kings Bay.

Mr. Butler

The United Kingdom contribution to the capital cost of the jointly used facilities at Kings Bay, has been agreed at $70 million in fiscal year 1983 dollars. Provision for this payment is included within the current Trident estimate of £9,285 million and is also taken into account in the Department's assessment of the savings of over £700 million at 1984–85 prices arising from the Kings Bay missile processing agreement.
