The work associated with producing the Houghton report was supported by the Ministry of Defence from within existing staff resources. No separate costs have been identified.

The report was submitted to Armed Forces Parliamentary Scheme stakeholders to inform the consideration of future governance options at their meeting on 25 October 2012. This included consultation with stakeholder groups that confirmed continuing support for the objectives of the scheme.
