§ Ms Rachel Squire
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence if he will make a statement on the costings for the Trident facility at Devonport; to what extent these are on target; and how they have altered since the refitting decision was made.
§ Mr. Aitken
The project to develop the Trident facility at Devonport is in its early stages but progressing satisfactorily as to time and cost. The costings have not altered since the decision was made to concentrate nuclear refitting at Devonport.
