    "The Defence Secretary has announced £79 million of investment in the next generation of Royal Navy submarines.

    The Successor submarines, which will carry the UK’s strategic nuclear deterrent, will be the largest and most advanced boats operated by the Navy, and their design and construction will be the most technologically complex in the history of the UK.

    Two contracts worth £47 million and £32 million have been awarded to BAE Systems Maritime - Submarines, who are leading on the design of the vessels."
