Aircraft Carriers

Asked if the Prime Minister was concerned about the building of two aircraft carriers in his constituency not going ahead for some months due to Ministry of Defence budget cuts, the PMS said that the MOD had responded to the story this morning, saying there was no suggestion that the programme would not go ahead. The CSR settlement allowed the MOD to proceed with two new aircraft carriers, which would be the largest ships ever operated by the Royal Navy. The legal steps that needed to take place before that happened were also well under way, so there was no suggestion that the programme would not go ahead.

Asked if there would however be a delay in the programme, the PMS said there was nothing in the MOD’s response to suggest that.
