To the House of Commons.
The petition of residents of the UK.
Declares that the entirety of the new Type 26 Global Combat Support fleet should be based at HMNB Devonport in Plymouth following the sale of HMS Ocean, in order to give a signal of the government’s longstanding commitment to Plymouth as a centre of naval operations and to support the planned centre of amphibious operations that will be based in the near vicinity.
The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to base the entirety of the new Type 26 Global Combat Support fleet at HMNB Devonport in Plymouth.
And the petitioners remain, etc.

They are being built at BAE Systems' Govan and Scotstoun yards on the River Clyde in Glasgow. The contract award to manufacture the Type 26 was announced by BAE Systems on 2 July 2017, with steel cut for the first of class, HMS Glasgow on 20 July 2017 by the then Secretary of State for Defence, Sir Michael Fallon.
