The Scottish Executive is in regular contact with the UK Government on a wide range of issues, including shipbuilding. However, I understand that the MOD is due to announce its decision on the preferred prime contractor shortly. I understand that, whichever company is successful, a substantial proportion of the work will come to Scotland and to the Clyde in particular.
