To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, what the cost to his Department is per flight hour for the use of the Empire Test School Gripen aircraft.

The Empire Test Pilots School is operated by QinetiQ under the Long Term Partnering Agreement and the Gripen training aircraft is provided by a sub-contractor as part of a fixed price contract amendment. I am withholding details of flight costs as their disclosure would prejudice commercial interests.
