Commenting on plans released today by the Ministry of Defence for works at RAF Lossiemouth ahead of the arrival of the Poseidon aircraft, MORAY MP DOUGLAS ROSS said:
“Details of this latest upgrade at RAF Lossiemouth underlines the huge investment the UK Government is making at the Moray base.
“The fleet of P8s, the construction of the impressive strategic facility and upgrades of the runway are all required to make RAF Lossiemouth and Moray the most strategic airbase for the defence of the United Kingdom.
“Four hundred million pounds is being invested and hundreds of additional jobs will be created. This is hugely positive news for Moray and shows the commitment the UK government have invested in the local area.”
