Select Committee on Public Accounts Minutes of Evidence



Letter to the Clerk of the Committee from the Permanent Under-Secretary of State, the Ministry of Defence

When I wrote to you on 29 September8[44] with my answers to the Committee's Questions of 3 July, I explained that urgent operational needs had put back the completion date for the installation of Flight Data Recorder and cockpit voice recorder. I said that we were assessing the impact on the planned completion date.

  We have now done so and estimate that the overall programme will be completed by early 2002.

  I am copying this letter to the Comptroller and Auditor General.
