To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, what support package his Department has agreed with Boeing for the P-8 aircraft; and what proportion of the through-life support of those aircraft will take place in the UK.

Commercial work to agree the future support arrangements for the Royal Air Force (RAF) Poseidon fleet is ongoing, and in order to protect the commercial interests of the Ministry of Defence, I cannot provide any further detail at this stage. Currently, support for the two aircraft that have already been delivered is being provided as part of the Foreign Military Sale case. This is enabling us to make use of the arrangements already in place for US Navy aircraft.
