There has been no change to our plans. On Type 31e, I refer the hon. Member to the answer given by my noble Friend, the Minister of State for Defence (the Rt Hon the Earl Howe), on 6 March 2019 (Official Report, Col. 608) in the House of Lords. On Fleet Solid Support procurement, I refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave on 25 March 2019 to Question 234164 to the hon. Member for Clwyd South (Ms Jones).
