To ask the Secretary of State for Defence

(1) whether his Department has reviewed its contracts currently held with companies based in Scotland that could, in the event of Scottish independence, be transferred to other parts of the UK;

(2) if he will estimate the total budget within which his Department would operate in the event of Scotland becoming independent.

The UK Government is not planning for Scottish independence and cannot pre-negotiate the details of independence ahead of the referendum. We are confident that the people of Scotland will continue to support remaining within the UK.
