    As the title states can anyone tell me or point me towards the most up to date annual budget for the Royal Navy?

    Thanks!

    My understanding is that the defence budgets will be announced in the next month or so.

    "Theresa May’s spokesman confirmed the National Security and Capability Review (NSCR) would be published in late spring."

    Meanwhile the current Defence in Numbers document (September 2017) gives a broad overview from a bean counter's perspective:

    Thank you for both! I’ve been through this document and whilst it contains lots of info it lacks the actual figure for the annual budget of the Royal Navy! :(

    It might be easier to establish the historical budget figure.
    A written question by Lord Burnett asked Her Majesty's Government some budget questions in April 2017.
    The answer by Lord Howe gives some insight into obscure Defence budget protocols.

    I'm advised the projected Navy budget covers ten years, hence the reason you'll only see retrospective accounts as past spending and saving will influence the amount available in future. For this reason, the specific figure for say 2018/19 cannot realistically be asked at AIB unless the person asking is clairvoyant.
