HC Deb 10 July 1995 vol 263 cc467-8W
Mr. Simpson

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what plans he has for an audit of the nuclear defence industry. [32474]

Mr. Arbuthnot

Financial and safety audit of the nuclear defence industry is a matter for the organisations concerned, together with relevant external regulatory bodies. Activities directly managed by the Ministry of Defence are additionally subject to scrutiny by the National Audit Office. There are at present no plans to augment these arrangements.
