The Government looks set to repeat the blue passports fiasco by putting ANOTHER order of national significance out to tender abroad. It'd be a huge missed opportunity for UK shipbuilding - and to the taxpayer's pocket >> http://www.gmb.org.uk/turning-the-tide#MakingIt
But does @GavinWilliamson have the same attitude to supporting Royal Navy shipbuilding in the UK? Seems not. Why is @DefenceHQ allowing shipyards in Germany, Italy, Poland, South Korea & Spain to eye up critical defence contracts? No excuse for sending our shipbuilding overseas.
There's NO excuse for sending new Fleet Solid Support ship contracts overseas. We already have a highly skilled UK shipbuilding workforce, which this work would add to, more than capable of making them at a fair market price >> new findings http://www.gmb.org.uk/turning-the-tide#MakingIt
