Henry Smith MP was delighted to announce earlier that the Secretary of State for Defence, Rt Hon Dr Liam Fox MP, will be visiting Crawley on Thursday July 28.
“It’s great to welcome the Defence Secretary to Crawley. Our town has quite a connection with the Armed Forces. Many local households have family members serving, Crawley is home to an active Territorial Army centre as well as major defence companies, such as Manor Royal based Thales UK and Boeing.“
“I welcome the opportunity to discuss with the Defence Secretary and local residents the phased withdrawal of our troops from Afghanistan and the significant equipment developed right here in Crawley such as the high-tech Watchkeeper unmaned drone aircraft.”
