holding answer 7 June 2011

The Ministry of Defence is currently in discussion with Boeing in preparation for the main investment decision point for the 12 new and two replacement Chinooks announced as part of the strategic defence and security review. The cost to the public purse will not be confirmed until the contract is signed. We will announce any significant procurement decisions to Parliament in the usual way.
