To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how much his Department has spent on the British Army Training Unit Suffield in each of the last 10 years.

Records of the amount the Ministry of Defence (MOD) has spent on the British Army Training Unit Suffield (BATUS) only exist for the last five years and are provided in the following table:

Financial year £ million
2006-07 32.5
2007-08 39.8
2008-09 38.9
2009-10 58.0
2010-11 55.3

These figures exclude manpower costs for military and MOD civil servants, and also for stock consumption, since these costs would be incurred wherever the Army is training.

The costs do include the impact of foreign exchange variations which accounts for an element of the increase between years 2008-09 and 2009-10, along with an increase in training activity at BATUS across the same period.
