§ Mr. Warren
asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he will make a statement on the progress of his review of the failures of management in his Department during the Nimrod airborne early warning programme, and on the findings of that review.
§ Mr. Sainsbury
The review to which my hon. Friend refers was to examine our arrangements for the scientific and technical specification and monitoring of major projects against the background of our experience with Nimrod AEW. It has now been completed and the report is being examined. I will write to my hon. Friend as soon as this work is completed.
