SOUTH NORFOLK MP Richard Bacon is supporting the 'Make it Marham' campaign, which is lobbying the Government to keep the Royal Air Force's Tornado fleet based at RAF Marham in Norfolk.
Mr Bacon said: “There are very strong arguments for keeping the RAF’s Tornados at Marham.
“Removing the Tornado fleet from Marham would be very damaging to the surrounding area. The station provides employment for 3,600 RAF and MoD personnel, as well as 1,220 contract staff and 350 other civilians, and it would be very painful for the local economy if this key source of employment and training were removed.
"The base at RAF Marham is very important to Britain's defence capabilities and to Norfolk's economy, and I urge the Government to Make It Marham”.
