To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, how much money from the public purse his Department has spent on contracted companies charging management fees to sub-contracted companies where both companies are owned by the same parent company in the last year.

Each year the Ministry of Defence (MOD) awards thousands of contracts. The MOD would need to analyse where sub-contractors and prime contractors share the same parent company, before investigating if such fees are contained within any relevant contracts. As such, this information is not held centrally and could only be provided at disproportionate cost.
