Extra order for super-carrier set to secure jobs at dockyard

A JOBS boost could be on the cards for the Rosyth dockyard if the construction of a third new super-carrier goes ahead. Armed Forces Minister Adam Ingram revealed during Defence Questions in the House of Commons that the French are planning to build a super-carrier on top of the two already programmed by the Royal Navy. The Fife yard is already tipped to carry out completion work on the first two British carriers when the orders are placed in 2007.
