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.”
