MP to bring more naval ships to Plymouth in new proposal
Johnny Mercer is again fighting for our naval city to increase its presence with more ships being based in our ports.
A new proposal of two dual-purpose naval ships could set to make better use of naval ships used in international aid, whilst also adding to our naval capability.
The proposal made by Penny Mordaunt, Secretary of State for International Development, is being fully supported by Mr Mercer saying “this is the collaborative approach that is needed” along with a request to bring the ships to Plymouth and basing them here.
Following the MOD’s confirmation of their commitment to retaining Plymouth as the centre of gravity for 3 Commando Brigade, this feels like a natural progression for our proud naval city.
