The Government have now replied to this question as follows:

"It is not possible to provide accurate details as to the cost of
producing the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena report as this was
one of several tasks that were included within a single contract
and detailed costings for each of these tasks is not available.
However, it is estimated that the overall cost was approximately

The author of the report was a contractor and was employed by
the Defence Intelligence Staff (DIS) on a long-term contract.
Further details of the author, including the name, are being
withheld under the terms of the Data Protection Act 1998.

The report was circulated within the DIS and to other branches
of the Ministry of Defence and RAF. As recommended by the
report, the DIS ceased to monitor unidentified aerial phenomena
sighting reports (and therefore reaped a saving in staff time)
as they contained no information of Defence Intelligence
interest and no further action was taken."

The question and answer can be viewed on the Parliamentary
website, fourth down at the following link:
