To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, what year he estimates the (a) Type 26, (b) Type 31 and (c) Type 32 will enter service.
22 October 2021
For details on Type 26 and Type 31, I refer the Rt Hon. Member to the answer given by my noble Friend, the Minister of State at the Ministry of Defence (Baroness Goldie), on 9 March 2021 to Question HL13634 in the House of Lords and the answer I gave to the Rt Hon. Member for North Durham on 5 March 2021 to Question 22374.
Type 32 remains in the conceptual phase, however on current projected plans, the expected in-service date is in the early 2030s.
