12. Mr. Sutcliffe

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence if he will make a statement on his plans for expenditure on the Army over the next three years. [18046]

We currently spend some £7 billion a year on the Army and, consistent with our policy of stable funding for defence, we expect to maintain spending at around this level over the next three years.
