12th September 2017

Mark Pritchard:

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, what plans he has to deploy Royal Navy ships to the Black Sea for training exercises.

Mark Lancaster, Minister of State for the Armed Forces:

The Royal Navy regularly deploys as part of national, bi-lateral, and multi-national training exercises all over the world, including the Black Sea. We do not disclose the detail of specific future exercises, operations or engagements as this would, or would be likely to, prejudice the capability, effectiveness or security of the Armed Forces.
