Investment for the navy - HMS Raleigh

I saw this in the news and my immediate thought was...they've already got one...why do want another? Bit cynical maybe...but there's alot of jobs being lost at the moment - and I'm not sure how having a new rig will encourage an increase in numbers being trained etc. I can see the point that it helps to anchor Raleigh (see what I did there?) as 'current' and therefore usable instead of being cast aside (or overboard) but as previously pointed out, this rig already exists albeit it's a bit dated.
