MP calls for debate on RAF base closures

On 14 December 2010, Labour MP for Dunfermline and West Fife Thomas Docherty called for an urgent debate on the closure of RAF bases, deploying a seldom-used parliamentary procedure: standing order 24.

Mr Docherty was speaking following reports that RAF Leuchars in Fife would close, while RAF Lossiemouth in Moray and Norfolk's RAF Marham would remain open.
