The London Post features an article on Defence Minister Harriett Baldwin recognising the vital contribution that businesses of all sizes from the East of England have made to the construction of the Royal Navy’s largest ever ships.

Defence Minister Harriett Baldwin said:

On behalf of Defence, the government and the whole of the United Kingdom, I would like to thank the hundreds of businesses around the country for the millions of hours they’ve spent equipping our ships in what has been an immense nationwide enterprise.

Their Herculean efforts showcase our great British talent and saw HMS Queen Elizabeth complete her 2017 sea trials with flying colours as she prepares to project our interests right across the world.
