As such, the UK Government does not have a direct contractual relationship with the Apache AH-64E supply chain. It is understood, however, that at least five UK companies have been successful in securing sub-contracts from Boeing, the helicopter manufacturer and lead system integrator, on the Apache programme. Together, these contracts represent about 5 per cent by value of Boeing's contribution to the global Apache programme.</p> more like this

The defence nuclear programme has never experienced an incident that has posed any risk to the public or the environment. Joint regulation by the Office for Nuclear Regulation and the independent Defence Nuclear Safety Regulator helps the Department maintain this achievement, ensuring defence sites adhere to the same high standards as the civil nuclear programme. The safety of the public, our submarine crews, the defence workforce and the protection of the environment remain the MOD's priority.</p> more like this
