Luke Pollard: 
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, what plans he has to replace HMS Scott.
The out of service date for HMS Scott has not changed as a result of the Integrated
Review. Current plans will see SCOTT retired from service in 2022. As part of the
Government's investment in shipbuilding, which increases to over £1.7 billion a year
this Parliament, we will procure a Multi-role Ocean Surveillance Ship (MROS) to
replace HMS Scott.

Though that'd limit the size available i guess?
A double ROV hangar, housing two ROVs, is situated aft of the accommodation
area. The hangar may be closed in order to function as a protected work area for storage, maintenance and handling of the ROV systems. The vessel also holds a ROV mechanical and electrical workshop.
