Jim Murphy MP, Labour’s Shadow Defence Secretary, commenting on today’s defence announcement, said: 

“This is incredible. At the same time as planning a no-fly zone over Libya the Tory-led Government chooses today of all days to sack RAF personnel. The pilots will be stunned and the country will be confused. These are the very same people who would help enforce no-fly zones. The Government is losing its way on defence and should re-open its Defence Review.”
