    At best I'd say H&W would be doing blocks with final assembly still in Scotland (due to the issue with the cuts of the 26 and politics).

    Sometimes if you put the link into Google you can get around the Paywall.

    Basically it's just a comment on the Minister's visit to Appledore, the holding off of the review, a summing up on the plan proposed for module build, the concerns some have made in terms of the cost and capability trade off, and that Appledore is building our ships (apparently 5, guess they got that one wrong)

    Well they have built 5 ships for us so far. Currently building the 6th. Just they started building them in 1999....

    It snot saying anything about our ships, just that the deal on the Type 31s is far from done and that Babcock are part of a consortium bid.

    Not sure how I got access to it, I certainly don't pay for the Financial times!

    As I said, if you go in through search engines you can get into the story (not certain how that works tbh).
