On Friday, Kit Malthouse MP for North West Hampshire visited Atomic Weapons Establishment (AWE) with Newbury MP Richard Benyon to meet with the new CEO Iain Coucher.
The visit comes on the back of meetings Kit has had with the government minister responsible for AWE.
Kit said “AWE is a lynch pin of our national defence and a major employer for the area and both MPs are strong supporters of the organisation. It is a vital depository of atomic knowledge that keeps the UK at the cutting edge of the global science frontier.”
“It was a fascinating visit and I also got a chance to speak to the management on a range of issues including terms and conditions and pensions.”
