"slipped slightly"????

A mere two years that all!

By the way, in one of the DSEI articles it was mentioned SJP's update on the NSS has been delivered some time ago but HMG were keeping it secret. Gosh I wonder why.

Thx, had not spotted that elsewhere (but then again, I did take quite a long holiday, away from screens).

Terminology used is a bit wobbly:
considering that " in summer 2018, the MOD awarded competition design phase contracts to three consortia" for the T31 and still design and build contract is expected by the end of this year.
- it was that combining of the two that let the rot set in, and what the new model is trying to address
- sure, there is plenty of detail design to be done, but the difference is essential

Forums like this help to pressurise the Gvmnt to be more transparent, RE Ron's " SJP's update on the NSS has been delivered some time ago but HMG were keeping it secret. Gosh I wonder why."
- but I agree that few reasons could be legit (may be Mr. Wallace's nomination of late, so that he gets to respond with some thought... and perhaps announcements, too?)
