holding answer 14 March 2011

The Type 23 frigates HMS Northumberland, HMS Lancaster and HMS Kent are currently in refit. In addition the Type 42 destroyer HMS Edinburgh and Type 23 Frigate HMS Argyll are both in post refit sea training and the Type 45 HMS Dauntless, which has recently joined the fleet, has not completed basic operational sea training. These ships are also therefore not available for operations.
