Abstract: Suppose $ A$ is a local ring and $ R = A[X,{X^{ - 1}}]$ is a Laurent polynomial ring. We prove that for projective $ R$-modules $ P$ and $ Q$ with rank $ Q < $ rank $ P$ , if $ {Q_f}$ is a direct summand of $ {P_f}$ for a doubly monic polynomial $ f$ then $ Q$ is also a direct summand of $ P$. We also prove the analogue of the Horrock's theorem for Laurent polynomials rings.
