I remember being told years ago by someone (so I cannot confirm whether this is true or folklore), that when the original production contract was signed, the price of the final batch of 100 or 200 missiles was virtually zero as MBDA were fed up with MoD cancelling orders. Therefore there was no financial benefit to the MoD in reducing the size of the order. That could be the reason why the UK seems to have received more missiles than France.

Received more missiles than France?... Aren't the British Storm Shadow missiles built in Britain?... Also, I believe Storm Shadow in France is called SCALP-EG, which stands for "Système de Croisière Autonome à Longue Portée – Emploi Général".
