holding answer 8 July 2013

Camp Bastion was constructed in 2006, so information prior to this date, does not exist. Nor is it possible to identify all Bastion construction and operation and maintenance costs, since 2006, as a number of the relevant contracts covered all of our larger bases. These costs are therefore accounted for collectively for all bases in Afghanistan and are as follows:

Financial year Costs (£ million)
2006-07 67.809
2007-08 80.855
2008-09 87.214
2009-10 116.905
2010-11 177.029
2011-12 77.528
2012-13 48.409
