To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, for what reason IMS Ltd paid non-audit fees to its auditors between 1997 and 1999; what steps his Department took to ensure the independence of audit opinion during that period; and whether his Department paid those fees.

During the period in question International Military Services Ltd was subject to standard auditing and reporting requirements for a commercial entity. All operating costs, including any auditing fees, would have been met from accumulated profit from business activities and investment interest. IMS accounts are publicly available at Companies House.
