Senior Liberal Democrat MP Sir Menzies Campbell has dismissed the latest bout of “speculation” about the future of RAF Leuchars in his North East Fife constituency and has been assured by Ministers that no decision is imminent.
Sir Menzies said:
“The debate about RAF Leuchars has been characterised too often by speculation which has subsequently proved to be totally without foundation.
“I have spoken to Ministers in the relevant departments. I have been assured that no announcement is imminent and that when it is made the decision will be by Ministers alone and not officials in the Ministry of Defence or senior military commanders.
“Rumours of this kind will not deflect in any way the continuing campaign for the retention of RAF Leuchars.”
