This question falls under my responsibilities in the Ministry of Defence. The cost of transferring the private finance initiative contract for Tornado simulators from RAF Lossiemouth to RAF Marham during the basing review was estimated at a rough order of magnitude net present value basis as £19 million. The costs would only be incurred if Tornados were to be withdrawn from RAF Lossiemouth before 2014-15.
