There will be no change in the level of Ministry of Defence civilian staff at Devonport as a result of the sale of HMS OCEAN.

The number of Royal Navy (RN) personnel in Devonport changes on a daily basis. As part of normal career management of RN personnel, those serving in HMS OCEAN will be individually re-assigned. These assignments will be determined by the skills required to deliver RN tasking, while taking into account individual preferences.

A breakdown of these assignments by location could be provided only at disproportionate cost.
