Mr. Tim Smith

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many internal auditors are employed in his Department and at what cost; how many internal audit reports were produced in 1989; how many of these were drawn to the attention of a Minister in his Department; and what internal audit work is subcontracted to private firms and at what cost.

Mr. Neubert

There are 113 internal auditors employed in MOD at an annual cost of £2.07 million. In 1989 736 internal audit reports were produced. None was drawn to the attention of a Minister in the Department. No internal audit work in MOD is subcontracted to private firms.
