I refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave to my hon. Friend Oliver Colvile, on 5 September 2014, Hansard, column 363W.

As a new class of Royal Navy warship, the naming of the Type 26 Frigates will follow a theme, and this is under consideration. The Ships’ Names and Badges Committee has noted the proposal to use names of UK cities.
