Dear Pat 
 
Release of Information  
 
Further to my letter of 19 January 2009, I am now in a position to give you a substantive 
response to your enquiry. 
 
We have interpreted your question as a request for the cost of historic aircraft and ships  
restored and maintained for display purposes. I can confirm that the Naval service is not 
responsible for historic ships and aircrafts. However, the National Museum of the Royal 
Navy operates as a non Public Departmental Body (NDPB) and receives a Grant in Aid 
from the Ministry of Defence to assist with associated running costs. Additionally the Royal 
Navy Historic Flight  has a collection of historic naval aircraft that it maintains for flying 
displays. 
 
Further information on NDPB’s can be found at the following link: 
http://www.civilservice.gov.uk/about/public/bodies.asp 
 
We do not hold the costs of maintaining these displays but you may like to approach the 
museums direct.  
 
If you are unhappy with this response or you wish to complain about any aspect of the 
handling of your request, then you should contact me in the first instance.  If informal 
resolution is not possible and you are still dissatisfied then you may apply for an 
independent internal review by contacting the Director of Information Exploitation, 6th Floor, 
MOD Main Building, Whitehall, SW1A 2HB (e-mail xxxxxxx@xxx.xx).  Please note that 
any request for an internal review must be made within 40 working days of the date on 
which the attempt to reach informal resolution has come to an end. 
If you remain unhappy following an internal review, you may take your complaint to the 
Information Commissioner under the provisions of Section 50 of the Freedom of 
Information Act. Please note that the Information Commissioner will not investigate the 
case until the internal review process has been completed. Further details of the role and 
powers of the Information Commissioner can be found on the Commissioner’s website, 
http://www.informationcommissioner.gov.uk. 

Yours sincerely 
Heather Godfrey 
 
 
 
 
The Constitution Unit, a research body at University College London, is carrying out an 
independent evaluative study of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 in co-operation with 
a number of public authorities, including the Ministry of Defence. An important part of the 
evaluation process is gathering the experiences and opinions of FOI requesters like you. 
Any information you provide will only be seen by the Constitution Unit and will be handled 
in accordance with its privacy policy explained in the survey. The Ministry of Defence will 
only see the published results: no individual responses will be visible to us and your 
participation will have no effect on your future dealings with the Ministry. 

 
If you would like to take part in this study, please visit the following link to be taken directly

response to your request.
