I congratulate my right hon. Friend on the decision to retain HMS "Invincible". However, will there be three aircraft carriers in the active Fleet, or is one of them to be placed in reserve? Is the cost of retaining HMS "Invincible" to come out of existing planned defence expenditure, or has the Treasury shown a willingness to chip in?
