HMS Argyll

Volume 474: debated on Thursday 24 April 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence where HMS Argyll has been deployed in 2008 to date; what plans he has for further deployments prior to its decommissioning; and if he will make a statement. (200307)

HMS Argyll was engaged in sea and pre-deployment training from April to October 2007 and has been deployed East of Suez, taking part in operations in the Arabian Gulf from October 2007 to April 2008. HMS Argyll is due to be removed from service in 2019. I am withholding HMS Argyll’s future programme as its release would, or would be likely to, prejudice the capability, effectiveness or security of our armed forces.
