Detailed information about the base port history of each Royal Navy warship is not held centrally. The figures provided in response to the hon. Gentleman's question of 23 January 2007, Hansard, column 1636W, were the best estimates available at the time. Further work has refined the current position, and is reflected in the information provided. Detailed information for 2004, 2005 and 2006 is, however, not available and could be provided only at disproportionate cost.
