The Ministry of Defence has significant business with Boeing, a large proportion of which is conducted through the Foreign Military Sales process with the US Government rather than direct contracting with the company. This includes the acquisition of the new P-8A Poseidon maritime patrol aircraft, AH-64 Apache helicopters and the recently announced £260 million support arrangement for the C-17 heavy lift aircraft. We cannot comment on what future requirements may be, or on any potential contractors.
