Royal Dockyards: time for action

Gavin Kennedy, James Love

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

That there is a case for changes in the way the Royal Dockyards are managed, and the way the employed workforce goes about the taxpayers' business, is probably the only thing all parties to the current discussions on commercial contract management agree about. Indeed, the trade unions, while giving evidence to the House of Commons Defence Committee in June, on more than one occasion assured MPs that they did not think that the status quo could continue, though they were unspecific as to what changes, if any, they saw as likely to be forthcoming from their side. This economic perspective considers the state of the debate surrounding Royal Dockyards and its future.
