S4M-02459: Next Phase of Aircraft Carriers Project at Rosyth Dockyard

That the Parliament welcomes the arrival of the second bow section for the aircraft carriers being assembled at Rosyth Dockyard; believes that the dockyard is uniquely placed to undertake projects of this complexity and scale, due to having both the largest dry dock in the UK and a workforce with first-class experience and skills; understands that, as a result of this, Rosyth will undertake not only the current assembly of the carriers, but their future servicing and refitting, and welcomes the skilled jobs that it believes this project will create and maintain in west Fife for decades to come.
