Whats happened to the Naval Base Review?

Have they decided where the axe is gunna fall, from what i read Plymouth was going to gets its pants pulled down, and Portsmouth would escape (mostly) as NBC(P) said no job losses would be needed?

Me none the wiser...

Simple to work out, see which area has more labour voters. The one that can return more MP's for the dear leader wins. Fcuk the one's that weren't going to vote Labour.

Bums on seats, bums on seats.

We all know all 3 bases are being kept but we havn't had any detail - there was talk of FLJ being leased/sold, Nelson Officers Mess being turned into a Hotel and job losses/partnering.

None of this has happened, so, my question is still relevant?

Where is the detail?

"There was talk..." - the only relevant part of your statement. 8O

Current speculation in Guzz is that due to a drop in the amount of submarine work, Babcock Marine will announce a substantial number of redundancies. Presentations will be made tomorrow, where it is expected that up to 900 jobs could be lost.

By my reckoning they seem to have made a lot of the workforce redundant already - if you are associated in any way with submarine work in Devonport then it is quite apparent that they do not have enough resource to carry out a V boat LOP(R), T boat LOP(R) and T boat RAMP, in parallel. No wonder they never deliver a contract on time. I don't believe the Ocean project is in any better shape. The supposed reduction in submarine work is just a smokescreen.

What's that got to do with jobs at the Naval Base with a contractor?
All the naval bases have a "Partnering Agreement" with Babcock/FSL (signed in 2002).

Job losses at BM are as a result of lack of work, obviously. Shame the figure is high though.

But at least its not Pompey...lol
