The Clyde Infrastructure Programme was established in 2015 to coordinate the delivery of multiple infrastructure projects to build new or upgrade/update existing facilities within the geographically constrained sites in Her Majesty's Naval Base Clyde, while ensuring the Naval Base could concurrently support Continuous at Sea Deterrence.

There are currently fourteen active projects within the programme. The total programme value is estimated at £1.6 billion over fifteen years.

I refer the hon. Member to the latest Clyde Infrastructure Programme Accounting Officer Assessment document for further detail. This is available in the Library of the House and on the GOV.UK website.
