Default £200m into new ship of state : The PM approves

[A new national flagship, the successor to
the Royal Yacht Britannia, will promote
British trade and industry around the world,
Boris Johnson has said.
The vessel would be used to host trade fairs,
ministerial summits and diplomatic talks
as the UK seeks to build links and boost
exports following Brexit. It would be the
first national flagship since Britannia,
which was decommissioned in 1997,
but the new vessel would be a
ship rather than a luxury yacht.]

[A name for the vessel has not been
announced
, but Johnson has faced
pressure from campaigners and Tory MPs
to name it after the Duke of Edinburgh,
who played a role in designing Britannia.
The government intends to build the
ship in the UK, at a reported cost
of up to £200m.
Johnson said: “This new national flagship
will be the first vessel of its kind in the world,
reflecting the UK’s burgeoning status
as a great, independent
maritime trading nation.”]
