BAE shipyard job cuts regrettable but inevitable, says Hammond
The defence company BAE Systems is to cut 1,775 jobs in the UK after a fall in government orders.
More than half will be in Portsmouth, where shipbuilding will end next year, while the remainder will be at two Scottish yards - in Glasgow and Rosyth - and at Filton near Bristol.
The Defence Secretary Philip Hammond told the House of Commons that the move was regrettable but inevitable.
