HC Deb 28 March 1996 vol 274 c667W
Mr. George

To ask the Chairman of the Public Accounts Commission if he will estimate the cost of all NAO full studies into defence matters since 1987 which have not been reported to Parliament. [21654]

The Comptroller and Auditor General reports to Parliament all National Audit Office defence studies when they are complete. In accordance with the long-standing and traditional practice of external auditors, he may also provide audit advice direct to audited bodies as subsidiary outputs to promote value for money and good stewardship of public resources.
