How will the credit crunch, lack of liquidity in the banking sector, possible downgrading of UK Government Bonds, Sterling devaluation and all the other financial issues in play at the moment affect the many defence PFI schemes. Some of the PFI's, for example the FSTA or RoRo ships are based around the concept of civilian usage on a part time basis that is used to offset costs. If there is a falling demand where does that leave the contract. Everything from accomodation to air refueling tankers are either already in progress or in negotiation. What's the future for these schemes?
