star this property answer text <p>Prior to the introduction of an electronic based HR system in 2006, departmental records on the detail of secondments were paper based. To identify anyone seconded to IMS would involve searching thousands of records and therefore the information could be provided only at disproportionate cost. IMS Ltd records do not show any secondees from the Ministry of Defence.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>To maximise its commercial opportunities and provide it with services in support of effective delivery of its core business, the UK Hydrographic Office (UKHO) established some subsidiary companies that operated at arm's length from UKHO on behalf of the Secretary of State for Defence. Any such companies were wholly-owned by the Defence Secretary and came under the umbrella of Admiralty Holdings Limited (AHL). Their scope and number varied from time to time according to the opportunities that presented themselves and any changes requiring approval from the owner. AHL was operated on the owner's behalf by UKHO. All companies are currently dormant are therefore no longer active.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Ministry of Defence does not hold a central record of the origin of all steel used in defence equipment projects. This is because steel for our major programmes is mainly sourced by our prime contractors and the supply chains are complex.</p><p>UK suppliers have, however, made a significant contribution to the supply of steel for some of our largest defence equipment projects, including 88% of the structural steel for the Queen Elizabeth Class Aircraft Carriers and 50% of the value of the steel required for the Batch 1 Type 26 ships. The specialist nature of some of our steel requirements means that UK steel producers do not always have the capability to supply our programmes.</p><p>This Government is committed to creating the right conditions in the UK for a competitive and sustainable steel industry. It publishes its future pipeline for steel requirements, together with data on how Departments are complying with steel procurement guidance on:</p><p>www.gov.uk/government/publications/steel-public-procurement.</p><p>This enables UK steel manufacturers to better plan and bid for Government contracts.</p>
