§ 21 Mr. Fabricant
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence when he next plans to undertake a review along the lines of "Front Line First"; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Freeman
The defence costs study was highly successful and achieved all of its aims and we do not plan, nor do we need, to conduct another similar exercise. The Ministry of Defence will, however, continue to subject all of its activities to close and continuous scrutiny as part of its normal arrangements for maximising efficiency and effectiveness.
