We collect data on the Ministry of Defence’s direct expenditure with UK Industry and commerce. This is published in the “Finance and economics annual statistical bulletin” at https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/mod-regional-expenditure-with-uk-industry-and-supported-employment-index. Data for the last three years is below:

Financial Year

£million (current prices)

2013-14

18,872

2014-15

19,163

2015-16

18,745

Published data for financial years 2011-12 and 2012-13 used an older methodology, which included some direct expenditure that took place outside the UK. These figures, given below, are therefore not directly comparable to those in more recent years.
