To ask the Secretary of State for Defence if he will make a statement on defence contracts awarded by his Department to defence-related industries in Chelmsford.

Mr. Aitken

During the 1992–93 financial year my Department placed work to the value of over £21 million with contractors in the Chelmsford area; to date in the current financial year, work to the value of over –6 million has been placed. In addition, companies in the area have won a significant value of sub-contract work.
