Armed Forces: Future Aircraft Carrier

Volume 699: debated on Monday 18 February 2008

asked Her Majesty's Government:

When they expect to let the manufacturing contract for the future aircraft carriers. [HL1855]

The conclusion of the manufacture contract is closely interlinked with the formation of the BAES/VT Joint Venture, to be called BVT Surface Fleet Ltd, which will receive the contract. We are working closely with these companies to place the manufacture contract for CVF.
