star this property answer text <p>The National Shipbuilding Strategy made clear that Royal Navy warships (destroyers, frigates and aircraft carriers) will be built in the UK. This recognises that preserving this national capability to design, integrate and build warships is critical to national security. The exemption under Article 346 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, allowing any member nation to reserve a procurement for reasons of national security, applies to warships - not to naval auxiliary vessels.</p> more like this
