Point of Order: Defence Policy (22 Jun 2006)

Tobias Ellwood: However the Minister dresses it up, there remains a fundamental gap in our air defences. Even when the T45 is rolled out, it will still have only a limited radar capability to the horizon. The only way in which we are going to protect our fleet is by having either Sea Harriers or the F-35, which has the radar capability. However the Minister dresses it up, our sea fleet will be vulnerable...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Topical Questions (15 Jan 2018)

Gavin Williamson: Just the other week I was learning about all the things that we do in terms of supporting the United States through the F-35 project. United Technologies Corporation, which employs more than 2,000 people near my constituency, is applying the actuators, as is Moog, another American company that employs a British workforce. We are making sure that we are an absolutely pivotal part of the supply...

Defence Expenditure (NATO Target) Bill (23 Oct 2015)

Julian Lewis: There is, in fact, one other aspect of the F-35 programme that I had not realised until recently: the potential for expansion in a crisis. When the assembly line is operating at its peak in America, it will produce one of these aircraft per day. If ever, heaven forbid, we found ourselves in sudden need of a large number of extra aircraft, that joint capacity between British industry and...

Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: Military Aircraft: Procurement (8 Oct 2019)

Baroness Goldie: The F-35 is at the beginning of its service life and is the most effective and developed aircraft capable of Queen Elizabeth Class (QEC) based operations. The Tempest acquisition programme is looking at the replacement of Typhoon's capabilities and any new combat air system will need to be interoperable with Carrier Enabled Power Projection. During the Concept Phase, QEC basing for any...

Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: Aircraft Carriers: Joint Strike Fighter Aircraft (11 Sep 2020)

Jeremy Quin: It has been longstanding policy that by bringing two aircraft carriers into service we will ensure that there will always be at least one carrier available 100 per cent of the time, either at sea or in port at very high readiness to deploy. The CEPP programme remains on track to deliver the second operational squadron of F-35 by December 2023. This will provide two squadrons available to...

Special Educational Needs: Isle of Wight: UK Armed Forces: Wales’s Contribution (25 Feb 2020)

Mark Tami: The hon. Lady has mentioned the F-35. The work on that aircraft is based in Alyn and Deeside, which I obviously welcome; it is vital that we have it. However, over the years, there has been a lot of uncertainty regarding that site because of the chopping and changing that has happened, with the MOD changing how contracts are placed and moving work forward or back. We need longer-term planning...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Leaving the EU: Aerospace Sector (24 Oct 2018)

Mims Davies: ...with those involved with the north Wales growth deal. I know, having met the hon. Gentleman last week, that a thriving sector, and the skills associated with it, are absolutely vital. The F-35 avionics global repair hub shows that this is a sector in which we are world-leading, and the UK Government in Wales will continue to support it.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Leaving the EU: Aerospace Industry (11 Jun 2018)

Guto Bebb: The Government’s aim and aspiration is to ensure that there will be tariff-free trade with the EU. I think that the company referred to by the hon. Gentleman will be very pleased to see a Government who are proactively pushing forward the combat air agenda. We are world leaders in combat air—as I highlighted, 15% of every F-35 is manufactured here in the United Kingdom. We are leading on...

Nato Warsaw Summit (11 Jul 2016)

Tom Blenkinsop: May I also welcome Unite’s decision to reconfirm the position that dates back to Ernest Bevin—the former general secretary of what was then the Transport and General Workers Union and today is Unite? Will the Secretary of State say more about the situation post-Brexit? Programmes such as that for the F-35 cost around $100 million per aircraft before the referendum. Will there be a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Defence Industry (23 Apr 2018)

James Gray: While it is of course quite right that the Government should do everything that they can to support the British defence industry, the truth of the matter is that it is an international business. In our area of the south-west, Boeing, Airbus and Leonardo—all foreign-owned—are the main employers and contributors. The F-35, which is a fantastic aeroplane, is made in America, but 15% of the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Topical Questions (12 Jan 2015)

Philip Dunne: As my hon. Friend knows, BAE systems is pursuing a number of significant export prospects for the Hawk, with active support from the Ministry of Defence and UK Trade and Investment Defence and Security Organisation. As international air forces modernise their front-line aircraft, we anticipate that there will be significant further interest in the next generation of Hawk aircraft, the Hawk...

Written Answers — Defence: Joint Strike Fighter Aircraft (4 Feb 2014)

Philip Dunne: The Ministry of Defence does not issue details of its cost estimates ahead of contractual negotiations, as this disclosure would prejudice its commercial interests. The UK has full access to US data on maintenance as well as conducting its own independent reviews and estimates in support of financial planning. At this relatively early stage of the programme, the support solution for the F-35...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Topical Questions (7 Nov 2016)

Michael Fallon: My priorities remain the fight against Daesh and implementing our strategic defence review. I am delighted to confirm to the House today that the United Kingdom has been chosen by the United States to become a global hub for maintenance and support services for the F-35 programme. The initial contracts will generate hundreds of millions of pounds of revenue and support thousands of highly...

Member for Fylde of 1 November 2011, Official Report, column 758, on BAE Systems, whether the job losses at BAE Systems are due to a slow down in the Eurofighter programme or...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Defence Funding (23 Oct 2017)

Michael Fallon: If Opposition Members were really concerned about jobs at BAE Systems, they would get behind our export campaigns for Typhoon and Hawk aircraft, rather than undermining them by criticising potential customers. When I saw the chairman of BAE Systems last week, I reassured him that we wanted to continue to work with the company. I have emphasised the importance of keeping production lines open,...

Defence Procurement and Supply Chains (1 Dec 2020)

Grahame Morris: The Minister’s rhetoric is excellent, but in terms of the practicalities for fleet solid support ships, for Rolls-Royce, and the supply chain and the lift-fan blades for the STOL engines for the F-35 Lightning fighter, will the Minister recognise the important role of Government in giving direction to companies such as Rolls-Royce to ensure that that work is carried out here in the United...

Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: Joint Strike Fighter Aircraft (10 Sep 2018)
