Boris about to make a statement.
Just read it.
The Army has nothing mentioned by name, whereas both RN and RAF do.
Well, at least that is a boost to British shipyards.Think we have to wait for next week for that. But a claim of 24 frigates by the end of the decade is interesting. T26/31/32 or did he mean 24 Escorts which would in clufe the T42s, which would suggest around 5 T32s unless they bump up the numbers on the existing programs
can you name a current British warship that hasn't been built in a British yard....? Actually, to be scrupulously accurate and save you the bother, I'll name both of them. HMS Magpie and HMS Protector.
His point still stands. Now we can do warship procurement the way we do NHS PPE procurement. Do any of Hancock's drinking buddies have a shipyard?We always did, and always could. EU procurement rules only ever required that any completion held must be open and transparent
