§ Dr. David Clark
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what changes his Department has made to the management of the Eurofighter 2000 project in the last 12 months. 
§ Mr. Arbuthnot
With our Eurofighter 2000 partners, we have taken the opportunity offered by the planned merger of the Eurofighter 2000 and Tornado management agencies to review the intergovernmental management arrangements for the programme. Measures have been agreed to define the merged agency's role more precisely, to improve its business processes and to clarify the responsibilities of senior committees.
