§ Mr. Archie Hamilton
The main cost elements of the Trident project are as follows:
Per cent. Submarines (less weapon system equipment) 31 Weapon system equipment including tactical system 21 Missiles 12 Shore construction 7 Warhead, miscellaneous, unallocated contingency etc. 30
As I indicated in my reply of 23 February at column 139 to the hon. Member for Workington (Mr. Campbell-Savours), communications equipment forms part of the tactical weapon system. The whole weapon system equipment accounts for 21 per cent. of the overall Trident project estimate.
