Nah, I don't think anyone truly believes that the Navy doesn't intend to build to Destroyers, but they need to resolve shipbuilding industry woes first and start to turn out a series of Frigates. Its pointless to have a nice new shiny 12kT destroyer but have nothing bigger than corvettes available to bulk out a taskforce for it to lead.
I wouldn't expect any hulls until at least a few years after a new frigate (or heavy frigate 22350M) series is laid down. 11356 don't count as they aren't built to an adequate spec.
