The Ministry of Defence (MOD) has negotiated a £410 million contract that will secure at least 400 highly-skilled British jobs and provide in-service support for the UK’s Atlas A400M aircraft, securing a key part of the RAF airlift fleet until 2026.
Visiting Tewkesbury sorting office this morning, where everyone's doing a great job. I'd like to thank the staff there, and all Royal Mail staff, for their hard work all year round and wish everyone a happy Christmas!
