The budgetary structure of the Ministry of Defence does not show separately the costs of the three individual Armed Services. This is because large parts of the Armed Services operate as fully integrated joint organisations in which elements from the Navy, Army and Air Force work closely together and share land, buildings and facilities, and sometimes equipment. The attached table shows expenditure with Scottish industry broken down by industry group.
