To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, what contracts have been placed by the armed services for ship building in the last 12 months; and what such contracts are proposed to be placed in 2018-19.
In December 2016 the Ministry of Defence ordered the two additional Offshore Patrol Vessels announced in the 2015 Strategic Defence and Security Review.
The contract for the first batch of the eight planned Type 26 Global Combat Ships is expected to be agreed by mid-2017 and for manufacture to start this summer.
