At present, the total recoverable costs related to MACA activity since March are estimated to be £29.7million.

Defence has taken a forward leaning approach towards supporting the Government's response to COVID-19, in order to ensure that costs are not a barrier to Other Government Departments requesting and receiving the military support they need.
