We do not record separately the cost associated with each mark of the Chinook helicopter. All three variants will utilise common engines, transmissions, rotor blades and largely common avionic systems. They are also supported under the same contracted arrangements and services against identified maintenance schedules. I refer the hon. Member to the answer 1 gave on 8 October 2012, Hansard, columns 663-64W, for the support and maintenance expenditure over the last three financial years for the Chinook fleet (of all marks).
