To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, with reference to the former Secretary of State for Defence's keynote speech at the Sea Power Conference on 15 May 2019, what progress he has made on (a) commissioning and (b) setting a timescale for completion for work examining the lessons from the Mars tanker procurement; and if he will place a report of the findings of that work in the House of Commons Library.
For details of the schedule for the MARS (Tide Class) Tanker Learning from Experience report, I refer the hon. Member to the answer given by the then Minister for Defence Procurement (Anne-Marie Trevelyan) on 4 September 2019 to Question 286672 to the right Hon. Member for North Durham (Kevan Jones).
I also refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave to the hon. Member for Warley (John Spellar) on 18 May 2020 in response to Question 45955.
