holding answer 12 December 2012

The improved financial discipline that the Ministry of Defence has demonstrated has enabled us to agree exceptional flexibilities with HM Treasury this year. We will continue to pursue improvements in our financial management and will expect to have, as a minimum, access to Budget Exchange on the same basis as all other Departments, in future years.
