To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how much his Department will spend on the D-5 missile life extension programme in each of the next five years.

Forecast and planned expenditure on the D5 missile life extension programme for the current and next financial years (FY) are as follows:

FY 2014-15-£27.1 million (Forecast)

FY 2015-16-£35.0 million (Planned)

Spending plans for 2016-17 and beyond have not yet been agreed and will be set as part of the Government's spending review process. Therefore, I am withholding details of the proposed spending beyond 2015-16 as to release this information would be likely to impact upon the formulation of Government policy.
