The Ministry of Defence (MOD) routinely collects statistical data on its direct expenditure with UK Industry and commerce, which includes tables showing expenditure by region and by Standard Industrial Classification (including Shipbuilding and repairing). However, the MOD does not hold regional expenditure statistics at a level to report on more specific activities such as spending on the military warships programme. The latest available data for 2016-17 is published at:
