James Heappey MP, the Minister of State for the Armed Forces, recently toured HMS Glasgow on the Clyde.

In a series of tweets, Heappey expressed admiration for the ship’s state-of-the-art design and versatility.

What a ship! My first look around #HMSGlasgow on the Clyde this morning. A huge ship that is designed like no other anti-submarine frigate but also incredibly versatile too. Can’t wait to see her in service with @RoyalNavy,” he noted.

Heappey then spotlighted the growth and development across the Forth Bridge at Rosyth. He shared, “Whilst the other side of the Forth Bridge at Rosyth, three Type 31 frigates – HMS Venturer, HMS Active and HMS Bulldog – are all also in build.

Summing up the significance of these shipbuilding initiatives, Heappey emphasised, “£ Billions of investment, here in Scotland, building the backbone of the future @RoyalNavy 🇬🇧.”
