09 Aug 2016
A substantial aerospace contract that plans to protect hundreds of Lancashire jobs has been welcome by Flyde MP Mark Menzies. 

The landmark 10-year support agreement for the RAF’s Typhoon jets will aim to deliver more than a third on savings and current support and maintenance costs. 

“This major contract will protect hundreds of jobs in Warton and at RAF Conningsby, Typhoon’s main operating base, while ensuring support is provided in the most efficient way possible.”
