answer text <p>It is too early to say what the steel requirements for the National Flagship might be. Responsibility for sourcing steel for Government procured vessels rests with Prime Contractors and in line with Cabinet Office guidelines, it will be for the Prime Contractor to make its steel requirements known to the UK steel industry in order that they may consider bidding.</p><p>The joint industry and Department for Business, Energy &amp; Industrial Strategy Steel Procurement Taskforce was launched in March 2021, with the aim of working with the sector to promote the unique selling points of UK steel and explore how best to support and position the industry for success in forthcoming major public contracts.</p> more like this
