Defence Industry and Shipbuilding (11 Jul 2018)

Tobias Ellwood: I just want to make a technical point. One reason why we are in this situation is that the Royal Fleet Auxiliary, as I mentioned, is made up of civilians. Most nations that have advanced naval capability have support vessels that are part of their naval fleet; it is for sovereign capability that those ships are built in that way. They do not have even the freedom to offer that elsewhere.

Defence Industry and Shipbuilding (11 Jul 2018)

Tobias Ellwood: May I invite the hon. Gentleman to visit a Royal Fleet Auxiliary ship to see the self-defence assets that are on board? That is allowed by law, given that civilians are working there. They are allowed to have a certain accommodation of capability, as he has just rolled out. That does not make such a vessel a royal naval warship or one that is doing any kinetic operations.

Defence Industry and Shipbuilding (11 Jul 2018)

Tobias Ellwood: rose—

Defence Industry and Shipbuilding (11 Jul 2018)

Tobias Ellwood: That was an introduction and a half. Thank you very much, Madam Deputy Speaker: it is a real pleasure to take part in this important debate. Looking at the motion, I see much on which we are in agreement, and looking around the Chamber, I see many of the usual characters who wholly support not only the armed forces and the armed forces industry, but our defence posture. Defence investment is...

Defence Industry and Shipbuilding (11 Jul 2018)

Tobias Ellwood: If the hon. Gentleman will let me finish this peroration, I will of course give way, just to re-energise myself. If we allow that trade to be affected by the changes made in the world around us by nations that choose to breach the rules we helped set up after the second world war, there will not be any money for any Government Departments, let alone the MOD. I hope we can join together to...

Defence Industry and Shipbuilding (11 Jul 2018)

Tobias Ellwood: There is nothing in that that I would disagree with; the hon. Gentleman is absolutely right. I will come on to what we are doing to promote Royal Navy ships; we will come on to the core fact of what is a Royal Navy ship and what is a fleet auxiliary ship, which again goes to the heart of the difference in how these different types of ship are procured.

Defence Industry and Shipbuilding (11 Jul 2018)

Tobias Ellwood: I will move on to our maritime capability and our procurement process, but first please allow me to finish the bigger case of why it is important that we invest here. I am making the point that although we must persuade Members of Parliament, we also need to persuade the nation. This is the same nation that enjoyed the fly-past yesterday and that expects us to step forward as a global...

Defence Industry and Shipbuilding (11 Jul 2018)

Tobias Ellwood: During my time as a Member of Parliament I have seen a change in the posture of the Royal Navy that we can all be proud of. What is the Type 45? It is the best in its class. What is the Type 26? It will be the best in its class. What is the Type 31? It is a change in approach to modular design, which will be exactly what we need for export. This is what Britain is doing. We invented the...

Defence Industry and Shipbuilding (11 Jul 2018)

Tobias Ellwood: I have hinted that I will come to that in a second, but there is a distinction between fleet support ships that employ civilians and Royal Navy ships that employ Royal Navy personnel. There is a distinction between the two from a security perspective. Going back to the point about value for money for the taxpayer, the Defence Secretary, the Procurement Minister and I all want to ensure that...

Defence Industry and Shipbuilding (11 Jul 2018)

Tobias Ellwood: Now we really are seeing the difference between us, if the hon. Lady is comparing this situation with the coalmining industry. Is that where this debate is going? I certainly hope not.
