Mr. Bud Bradley (Parliamentary Secretary to Minister of National Defence):

Department of National Defence's

submarine project cost estimates include all items, with the exception of (e) (ii). An appropriate allowance for cost risk is also included in the estimates for each item. The estimates will differ somewhat depending on whether they apply to the French or the British submarine design. The estimates will be refined during project definition so as to support a subsequent government decision on whether or not to proceed with project implementation. The actual cost estimates cannot be divulged at this time so as to protect British and French proprietary information and not to prejudice the selection of submarine design country of origin.
