To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, what the cost of training and maintaining Tornado teams has been for each year since 2010.

Answer (Mr Sam Gyimah)

We do not hold the information requested because non-pay costs for Tornado training are included within a single yearly National Tactical Resource Group (NTRG) training budget. The associated expenditure reports only demonstrate the total cost of operating all training delivered by NTRG within the two training centres as a whole; all training expenditure is monitored under a single responsibility code.

Additionally we are unable to determine the cost of maintaining Tornado teams as these costs are embedded within individual establishment’s budgets. The amount of budget allocated to tornado delivery differs widely based on the type of establishment, required standing commitment and the number of staff requiring annual or initial training to fulfil their roles.
