Diana stands up for Britain's Red Arrows

Red Arrow

Diana Johnson stood up for skilled jobs and the red arrows in the House of Commons today.

Diana asked the Minister:

"As we have heard, defence procurement must be about supporting our own strategically important defence manufacturing industry and protecting skilled jobs, as many countries do around the world. There can be no greater ambassadors for global Britain than our Red Arrows. Ministers have previously said that the current Red Arrows fleet of Hawk trainers, built at Brough just outside Hull in the 1970s, have an out-of-service date of 2030. Will we get a decision on the renewal of that fleet over the next few years?"
