All of the missions conducted by the P-8A Poseidon in support of the Border Force over the English Channel have been conducted as routine training missions that were already programmed to take place. The costs of these sorties are covered within Air Command's Annual Budget total and there were therefore no additional costs to Defence. Consequently, the costs of these sorties have not been separately captured.
