Faslane investment deal ‘will benefit the wider community’

The billion-pound development of HM Naval Base Clyde will be a catalyst for growth and regeneration in the wider community, Scottish Secretary David Mundell has said. The Ministry of Defence is investing in developing the base as the Royal Navy submarine centre of specialisation, which will see all UK attack submarines based in Argyll and Bute by 2020 and the eventual arrival of the Dreadnought class of ballistic submarines.
