star this property answer text <p>Our Royal Navy will soon take delivery of their second aircraft carrier, HMS PRINCE OF WALES, completing the Queen Elizabeth Class. She will be ably supported by cutting edge F-35 fighter jets. We are investing in a full new generation of submarines and Type 26 frigates which will equip the Royal Navy with world leading capabilities to defend British and our allies' interests. We have already committed to building new Batch 2 Offshore Patrol Vessels (OPVs) and, as announced on 22 November 2018, will retain the Batch 1 OPVs. In addition, the winning bidder for the Type 31 will be announced shortly. The Government has also committed to increase the number of personnel in the Royal Navy, and will spend £64.1 billion on procurement and support of ships and submarines over the next decade.</p> more like this

Medically Fully Deployable (MFD) personnel are those medically fit for duty with no employment limitations.

MLD personnel may have a medical condition or functional limitation that prevents the meeting of all Medically Fully Deployable (MFD) requirements. Medically Not Deployable (MND) personnel are medically fit for duty with major employment limitations. MND personnel are not fit to deploy on operations but may be deployable on UK-based exercises.</p><p>For the numbers of UK Regular Armed Forces and UK Future Reserves 2020 personnel in each MDS category in each year up to 2017, I refer the hon.

The status was first designated 20 months ago, and the Department expects the full impact of the changes that have since been made to the programme will be reflected in the IPA's next annual report. Improvements to the realism of scheduling have led to key programme milestones being met in the past year, such as live firing crew clearance and successful battlefield mission assessments.</p> more like this
