Trident Submarines

Question for Ministry of Defence

UIN 136896, tabled on 20 April 2018

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, what recent estimate his Department has made of the cost of the trim and compensation system for the Dreadnought programme; and whether that estimate is an increase on previously made estimates.

Answered on

Costs of individual systems on Dreadnought are managed within the programme's overall £31 billion budget, which is funded by Defence. I am withholding details of the cost of this system as disclosure would, or would be likely to, prejudice commercial discussions and interests.
