Royal Navy: Reduced Readiness

Volume 455: debated on Thursday 18 January 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence which Royal Navy ships will be placed into reduced readiness; and when this is expected to take place. (113749)

The Royal Navy routinely has vessels at varying levels of readiness. This allows necessary maintenance and refits to be carried out and training to be undertaken. Decisions on whether to make adjustments to the readiness states of warships will be taken in the MOD’s current planning round, the results of which are currently planned to be announced in the spring of this year.
