Defence Logistics Jobs

EDM number 2523 in 2005-06, proposed by Mark Pritchard on 06/07/2006.

That this House expresses concern over the Ministry of Defence's decision to close Sapphire House in Shropshire, which will lead to the loss of up to 400 Defence Logistics Organisations jobs; believes that the decision, at a time of new deployments by Her Majesty's Armed Forces, could lead to a reduced logistical capability and possibly hinder delivery of vital equipment to the frontline; and calls upon the Government to examine fully the implications of its decision for the workforce, their families and local suppliers and to ensure that all necessary measures are put in place to help those who lose their jobs into re-training and new employment.

This motion has been signed by a total of 23 MPs.
