Mike comments on proposed sale of Condor airfield

Angus MP Mike Weir has reacted  to the news that the Ministry of Defence intends to sell off the air field at RM Condor as part of its disposal of MOD assets.

“It is clearly good news that, unlike other bases in Scotland, there is no plan at present to close the base.”

“ The proposal to sell off the airfield will, however, considerably reduce the size of the base and I will be seeking assurances from the Minister that this will not adversely affect the future use of the base and the ability to deploy units from it”

“ I hope that should the sale proceed that the MOD will make  every effort is made to ensure that it creates an economic benefit to Arbroath”
