Delyn MP David Hanson has backed the Government’s decision to proceed with both the Airbus A400M military transporter and the Future Strategic Tanker Aircraft (FSTA) which is based on the Airbus A330.
David Hanson said:
“Employees at Airbus in Broughton, who have been understandably very concerned about the Government’s Strategic Defence and Security Review, will welcome this decision.
“Airbus is vitally important for the Flintshire and wider British economy and it is critical that it retains Government support in order to continue as a world-leader in its field.
“I back this announcement and will continue to press the Government to ensure Airbus get the backing it needs from Westminster.”
