Armed Forces

The Government recently announced that £2.5billion will be invested into Babcock and the Dockyard, securing 4,000 jobs over the next five years. I have already secured 7 of the new Type-26 warships to be based at Devonport and I will continue to campaign for one of them to be named 'HMS Plymouth' so that we can secure Plymouth's Naval heritage for generations to come.

Alongside this I will fight to secure what Armed Forces are based in the area, protecting servicemen within historic sites such as Stonehouse Barracks. This has been the heart and soul of the Royal Marines for many years and I will continue to seek assurances that this vital area is protected at all costs.
