We have not commissioned any research specific to Hartlepool, however I am working closely with colleagues across Government and with industry to reinvigorate the shipbuilding industry across the length and breadth of the UK. Our efforts are not limited to just shipbuilders; we are focused on supercharging the entire Defence sector across the UK, from our rich supply chain to repair and disposal.
