The MOD does not hold the data for 2011-12 and 2012-13 because the Department stopped making estimates of regional direct expenditure after 2007-08 as they did not directly support our policymaking or military operations. In 2015-16 these statistics were reintroduced in order to help monitor some of the initiatives set out in the 2015 Strategic Defence and Security Review. A new methodology was developed and applied to the most recent three complete Financial Years. Data for 2016-17 will be published later in 2017 and annually thereafter.
