            Appledore don't need to build them.

            Poland is the place to get a ship built these days.

              DML APPLEDORE
              The owner of Appledore Shipbuilders is bidding for a major contract that would throw a lifeline to staff at the North Devon yard. Plymouth-based Devonport Management Limited (DML) is bidding for the contract to build a new vessel for the Scottish Fisheries Protection Agency.

              If DML wins the contract, the ship would be built at Appledore. The order could be worth £20 million and would secure work for the yard for up to two years.

              The 180-strong workforce will find out next week whether Scottish Executive Minister Ross Finnie will place the order with them.

              There is stiff competition for the contract from other yards, including a company in Germany and Scottish-based Ferguson's, which was awarded the contract for the Torpoint Ferry in 2003.

              Jobs could be at risk if DML fails to win the contract, according to Stuart Fagan, South West organiser of the GMB: "There is the threat that there will be redundancies if they don't get the contract."

              In 2003, Appledore went into receivership with the loss of around 1,000 skilled jobs. It was then bought by DML.[WMN 250206]
