1. The Ministry of Defence's Annual Report and Accounts
2004-05, published on 28 October 2005, combines the Annual Performance
Report and Consolidated Departmental Resource Accounts for the
year ended 31 March 2005.
This is the third year that the Ministry of Defence (MoD) has
combined its Annual Performance Report and Consolidated Departmental
Resource Accounts into one document.
2. Our inquiry examined issues relating to both
the Annual Performance Report and the Consolidated Departmental
Resource Accounts. We also examined the gifting of Operational
Ration Packs to the United States of America which took place
in the 2005-06 financial year.

Under Secretary of State (PUS) on 21 November 2005, replacing

Woolley, MoD's Finance Director, on 24 January 2006. We received
written evidence from MoD both before and after the oral evidence
