To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, what the expected costs are of the (a) additional trials for the Ajax vehicle and (b) modifications to that vehicle being tested.

The cost of the Millbrook trials are commercially sensitive. The trials are essential to allow us to safely bring Ajax into service. We have a firm price contract with General Dynamics Land Systems which requires them to deliver 589 vehicles that meet the agreed specification for a cost of £5.5 billion.
