Defence written question – answered on 9th September 2014.
Alert me about debates like this
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what process the Royal Navy uses when deciding the names of new vessels; and whether names of UK cities can be used for the Type 26.
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.
