Call for Evidence

Defence in Scotland

This submission form is not currently public. Please only use this form if invited to do so by the committee, otherwise your submission might not be considered.

Terms of reference: Defence in Scotland: military shipbuilding

The Committee is inviting written submissions which should focus on, but not be limited to: 

  • What impacts are the Government’s Shipbuilding Strategy and National Shipbuilding Office having on the shipbuilding industry in Scotland?
  • How many and what types of Royal Navy ships will likely be built in Scotland in the years ahead? Will the sector grow?
  • How does the procurement approach for each class of Royal Navy ship being determined on a case-by-case basis (including whether or not there should be international competition) affect Scottish shipbuilding?
  • To what extent does Scotland benefit from exporting military ships (or parts of them) and/or their design licences? How can these opportunities be maximised?
  • What more could the UK Government do to maintain and foster military shipbuilding in Scotland?

The Committee values diversity and seeks to ensure this where possible. We encourage members of underrepresented groups to submit written evidence.

Deadline for submissions

The Committee calls for evidence to be submitted by 23.59 on Tuesday 10 May.
