Examination of Witnesses (Questions 100-102)|
JEFFREY CB AND
24 JANUARY 2006
Q100 Chairman: That is notified in
prior years, so presumably it has appeared in these accounts before?
Mr Jeffrey: Yes, it has.
Q101 Mr Jenkins: £65 million.
We lost a building or it has been impaired in some way or fashion.
Can you tell us why, or if you cannot tell us now can you give
us a note on it?
Mr Woolley: This is a building
at the Atomic Warfare Establishment that was unable to meet the
requirement after it was built for which it was designed. No other
use for the building could be identified and therefore it had
to be written-off.
Q102 Mr Jenkins: Could you give us
a note on that as well? The one that Mr Jones has askedand
I am racing through it as fast as I canthe one with regard
to Swan Hunter. Could you send us a note on that, please, giving
us the background in the future for that Swan Hunter project and
Mr Jeffrey: Yes.
Chairman: I think that will bring us
to an end of this marathon session. I am most grateful to you,
particularlynot meaning any disrespect to you, Mr Woolleyto
you, Mr Jeffrey, for facing us so soon after you came into the
Ministry of Defence and for handling so well some really quite
detailed questions. There will be, almost certainly, other things
about which we would like to write to you to ask for answers which,
in the interests of it not getting too late this morning, we will
not pursue now. We are most grateful to you for coming in front
of us today. Thank you very much.
