Historic site valuation records for the Atomic Weapons Establishment (AWE) are not held in a form that allows the provision of the valuation information requested. As regards future expenditure, allocations for which have yet to be finalised, the sub-contractors chosen by the AWE management and operation contractor, AWE plc, will depend on the outcome of commercial negotiations and activities conducted by that company. Projections relating to the likely nationality of such sub-contractors are not available and would in any case be speculative.
