Good news today as Labour’s Shadow Defence Secretary Nia Griffith MP has pledged that a Labour Government will base port all the Type 26 and Type 31 Frigates in Devonport.
This is the result of some sustained campaigning from our neighbouring Labour MP Luke Pollard, and something that Nia and I spoke about when she visited Plymouth just a few months ago. I hope this intervention from the Shadow Defence Secretary puts the additional pressure needed on the Conservative Government to do the right thing for Plymouth.
